About Us

We have expertise in treating the entire spectrum of mental illness through an integrative approach to psychological well-being — via medications, psychotherapy and alternative treatments. Most psychiatric care of today does not look much different from that of 20 years ago. At SavantCare we improve the efficiency and quality of psychiatric treatment through the use of cutting-edge technologies. Our practice uses evidence based medicine along with state-of-the-art technology to improve the lives of our patients.
