Board Certified in Psychiatry and Neurology
Dr Padma Aking is a board certified psychiatrist who treats an array of psychiatric disorders. She is of the firm belief that the mind ‘matters’. Mental illnesses are medical illnesses that are sometimes complicated by bio-psycho-social factors in an individual’s life. Just as is the case for other medical disorders, various treatment options are available for psychiatric disorders as well.
Working together in overcoming the stigma associated with mental illness is one of her goals. Dr Aking’s other objective is to encourage and restore hope into the treatment of psychiatric illnesses for a better quality of the patient’s holistic health – of the body, mind and spirit.
