Dr. Abid Nazeer, Founder/President

From early on, I was driven to pursue a career in mental health treatment. I was motivated by witnessing the powerful effect psychiatric care had on people first hand. Whether thru a loved one or ourselves, mental illness has touched most of us in some way. I strive to educate my patients as much as possible to treatment options and the science behind psychiatric conditions. There is transparency in my thought process, so you will know exactly why I am recommending a certain treatment.

Outcomes can improve dramatically when there are open communication and education between a provider and patient. Ultimately, we are a team with the same goal, getting you well and have you functioning at the highest level possible! I founded APS to offer the most up to date treatment methods, some that are not yet widely available. The field of psychiatry is advancing rapidly and we’re able to at last see more rapid improvements and individual treatment plans based on objective testing. Trial and error or educated guessing were the mainstays for too long. The world is changing as technology evolves, I believe health care should adapt and use the changes to its advantage.
