Dr. Esmaili has a special interest in the intersection of physical illness and mental health. Having spent time researching medical disorders that could cause psychiatric symptoms, Dr. Esmaili has a breadth of knowledge in this specialized area.
Approaching a case from a mind-body health perspective involves understanding the potential for an existing medical condition to affect mood and behavior, the impact that current medications have on the mind, and detecting a previously undiagnosed physical condition that could be creating or exacerbating psychiatric symptoms.
Dr. Esmaili always keeps in mind that the diagnostic possibilities of a patient with mood and behavior complaints include medical and neurological conditions as well as mental health issues. Being a physician trained in medicine as a foundation and having specialized in mental health, Dr. Esmaili has a unique perspective to bring to the assessment of mental health concerns.
