Where to Start

Get Treatment From A Highly Experienced Psychiatrist

Improved diagnostic tools and treatment methods introduced over the past several decades have advanced psychiatry significantly as a medical discipline. Recent scientific advances and clinical breakthroughs offer hope to patients and their loved ones, and mental health professionals now have many more options at their disposal for relieving emotional pain and suffering.

Advances in neuroscience and treatment methods (such as medications and talk therapy) have made the psychiatric landscape more complex, and even confusing to some. Patients and family members need a highly trained psychiatrist to help them find the right diagnosis, identify all the relevant treatment options, and navigate a complicated mental health care system to get the best care possible. Dr. Krishna Sunkureddi has devoted his professional life to being just this kind of psychiatrist.

Many patients and family members are frightened and confused about mental illness, and often have a very simple, yet profound question: “Where do I start?” Dr. Sunkureddi’s years of clinical practice have taught him that the best place to start for anyone facing mental illness is to establish a close and trusting alliance with a well-trained, highly experienced psychiatrist. The psychiatrist, trained as a medical doctor and specializing in mental health issues, has the knowledge and experience required for the difficult task of diagnosing mental illness, recommending treatment options (including medications), and coordinating a team of professionals to assist in diagnosis and treatment.

Much of Dr. Sunkureddi’s professional experience and current practice is devoted to performing evaluations and consultations for patients and their loved ones who are just getting started in the process of finding appropriate mental health care. In some cases, he meets with patients on a short-term basis to establish a diagnosis, suggest an initial treatment plan, and provide referrals to other clinicians. In other cases, Dr. Sunkureddi forms long-term treatment relationships with patients that focus on managing illness, promoting wellness, and reaching the goal of optimal functioning.
