    Root Cause Psychiatry Wins Eight Bethesda Magazine Top Doctor Awards

    Root Cause Psychiatry: Recovering what makes you you.

    Are you feeling overwhelmed by the many challenges life has presented to you? Have you recently reached a point where giving up seemed like the only option? Do you sense that a part of yourself is missing, leaving you feeling "broken"? Whether you're considering psychiatric treatment for the first time or your current mental health treatment isn't yielding the desired results, we take a different, more precise approach. We call it Root Cause Psychiatry. With our innovative Root Cause Psychiatry approach to treatment, we are committed to doing everything possible to ensure you feel your best and regain your health. And our results speak for themselves - each of our doctors has been named a Bethesda Magazine Top Doctor. Our eight compassionate Bethesda Magazine Top Doctors are dedicated to going above and beyond to help their patient feel well, recover their health, and improve their relationships.

    So, what exactly is Root Cause Psychiatry?

    Achieving good mental health is a complex process that depends on various interconnected factors. From our genes and gut health to cellular health, immune system, and the quality of our relationships at home and work, all these elements form your unique "Mental Health Ecosystem." This ecosystem includes the root cause drivers of mental health, which can either contribute to your well-being or hinder it.

    To help you better understand this concept, take a look at the infographic below. It visually represents the intricate web of factors that influence your mental health, highlighting the root causes that can either support or challenge your overall well-being.


    At Potomac Psychiatry, we believe in taking a comprehensive approach to mental health treatment, based in an understanding of your unique Mental Health Ecosystem. We understand that simply addressing symptoms is not enough. Our goal is to analyze and treat each and every root cause of your condition. With the help of state-of-the-art laboratory testing and our extensive clinical experience, we delve into your unique history and clinical presentation to create a personalized treatment plan.

    Our team of dedicated Bethesda Magazine Top Doctors is renowned for their exceptional expertise and commitment to patient care. Using cutting-edge diagnostic tools, we fine-tune our treatment approach based on your distinctive mental health ecosystem. By targeting the root causes of your distress, our aim is not only to help you feel better but also to ensure long-term well-being.

    Through our innovative approach known as Root Cause Psychiatry, we eliminate the need for a "trial-and-error" treatment process. Instead, we provide you with a personalized roadmap to recovery, addressing your specific biological, psychological, and social needs. By considering factors such as genetics, cellular functioning, gut microbiomes, environmental toxins, and immune system concerns, we develop tailored treatment plans that directly address the core drivers of your distress.

    Our comprehensive treatment approach goes beyond surface-level solutions. We deeply investigate the genetic, cellular, and biochemical contributors to conditions such as autism, depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, bipolar disorder, cognitive decline, and long COVID. From medication and dietary recommendations to talk therapy and supplements, our treatment plans tackle each root cause of your suffering. And we don't stop there – our clinicians continually monitor your progress and refine the plan as needed. We are committed to doing Whatever It Takes to help you feel well and recover your health.

    At Potomac Psychiatry, we recognize that you are more than just your mental health symptoms. We treat you with respect, dignity, loyalty, and integrity, acknowledging your unique journey towards recovery and becoming your healing companions throughout that journey. Through our approach, known as Precision Psychiatry, we aim to help you feel better and experience lasting improvement, all while minimizing the financial burden of treatment.

    By addressing the root causes of your distress, we help you become truly whole. If any of this resonates with you, Potomac Psychiatry is here to support you. With over four decades of experience and countless lives improved, we are ready to offer you the personalized treatment you deserve. Let us guide you on your path to better emotional well-being.
