Dr. Depala is qualified to integrate knowledge about human behavior and development from biological, psychological, familial, social, and cultural perspectives with scientific, humanistic, and collaborative approaches to diagnosis, treatment and the promotion of mental health.
Dr. Depala performs an extensive evaluation upon first meeting with a patient. He spends considerable amount of time answering questions about the diagnosis, explaining how he arrived at his conclusions, what the patient’s prognosis is, and what treatment options exist. He discusses the different options available with patients including the pros and cons of each option. Follow up appointments, though not as long as the initial evaluation, are conducted carefully and thoroughly as well.
