Psychiatry: A Crucial Component of Primary Care

When we talk about primary care, psychiatry absolutely counts! Mental health plays a significant role in overall wellbeing, and Nao Medical recognizes its importance. We integrate psychiatry into our comprehensive approach to ensure our patients receive the holistic care they deserve.

Psychiatry is the branch of medicine dedicated to understanding and treating mental illnesses, emotional disorders, and behavioral challenges. It involves assessing, diagnosing, and managing conditions such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and more.

By incorporating psychiatry into our primary care services, we empower our patients to address their mental health concerns alongside their physical health. We believe that mental health should be given the same attention and care as any other aspect of well-being.
