Consultations on Complex Cases

An important part of Dr. Krishna Sunkureddi’s practice involves providing expert consultation to other physicians and mental health professionals on challenging and complex cases. After learning about the case from the patient’s clinician and reviewing any relevant medical records, Dr. Sunkureddi meets with the patient (and often with his or her loved ones) for at least one or two sessions. He uses information gathered during those sessions to form a diagnostic impression and suggest treatment approaches. The patient then works along with the referring clinician to implement Dr. Sunkureddi’s recommendations as they deem appropriate. In many cases, Dr. Sunkureddi remains available over the long term for ongoing consultation and assistance with treatment.
