For Patients

Helping You

Mental illness—whether it is depression, anxiety, bipolar or a psychotic disorder—can be very painful. These are real illnesses causing real pain to people all over the world each and every day. Yet mental illness remains tremendously under diagnosed and under treated. Many people go months or years without proper diagnosis or treatment. So much of the pain and suffering from mental illness is unnecessary.

As an experienced, Harvard trained Psychiatrist, Dr. Krishna Sunkureddi takes time to diagnose and understand his patients, and then uses one or more of the many different effective treatment options available today.

If you think you or a family member may be suffering from a mental illness, please call Dr. Sunkureddi. He sees patients in the Humble, Houston, and surrounding areas.

Treatment Options

Over the past decades, psychiatry has advanced significantly as a medical discipline as a result of significant research. Today we have many new diagnostic tools and treatment methods. Many new medicines have been introduced. We have more data on how to use these medicines and which patients benefit most from different types of medicines. Psychiatry has also developed new types of psychotherapy for several mental illnesses.

There are so many new options available to patients that it can be difficult for patients to know which one, or which combinations, to choose. It is important for patients to find a psychiatrist who has significant experience with the broad variety of treatment options available today. Psychiatrists, trained as medical doctors with a specialty in mental health issues, have the knowledge and training required for diagnosing mental illness, recommending treatment options (including medications) and coordinating a team of professionals to assist in diagnosis and treatment.

There are thousands of psychiatrists, psychologists and others who are devoting their professional lives to treating patients and to easing the pain that mental illness can cause. If you think that you or a loved one may be suffering from mental illness, please contact a professional. Helpful treatments are available. Dr. Krishna Sunkureddi is a psychiatrist in Texas that sees patients from Houston, Humble, Atascocita, and surrounding communities. He is patient, caring, and devoted to helping patients.
