Community Psychiatry improves access to exceptional mental health care in the communities that we serve across California.
We specialize in connected care through in-person or telemedicine visits with a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner. Our focus is medication management, while working closely with primary care physicians and psychotherapists to ensure that patients receive well-coordinated care.
At Community Psychiatry, we value practicing compassion, being trustworthy, and striving for excellence in patient care. We believe that our company culture is a reflection of these values and that actions speak louder than words.
