Dr. Chima Asikaiwe
Dr. Chima Asikaiwe, MD is a board certified psychiatrist, specialized in treating both adult and geriatric population. I have over 15 years of experience in caring for patients with psychiatric disorders. I treat depression, bipolar disorders and other mood disorders, schizoaffective disorders, Schizophrenia and other psychotic illnesses, anxiety related disorders, and sleep disorders, among many other psychiatric disorders.
My practice location is at a convenient location, and easily accessible to both the handicapped and fit clients.
My practice style is goal oriented, aiming at keeping my patients healthy, stable, functional and productive. I also work with my patient's family to provide support and education on patient illness to improve awareness on the diagnosis, so that they will understand the illness well so that they can participate well in the care and support for their loved one.
I provide some psychotherapy as well during my treatment. I also work with a team of therapist and psychologist to provide comprehensive care.
If the patient is healthy and stable, patient and their family are happy.
I work weekdays mainly, but some hours on Saturdays can be arranged if necessary.
At initial visit, my clients are greeted with warm welcome, thus initiating the process for patient and provider to gradually establish rapport and understanding of each other.
