Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a common condition among children and adults alike and can often get in the way of productivity.

Treatments for ADHD
The most common treatments we recommend for our patients with ADHD include medication management and psychotherapy with a mental health professional.

Everybody deals with anxiety to some extent, whether we are nervous about an upcoming exam or are meeting somebody new for the first time.

Prescription medications for anxiety may include antidepressants.
Depression: Signs, Symptoms, and Treatment
Depression is often a debilitating condition that leaves patients feeling hopeless, worthless, and/or fatigued. While everyone may experience light depressive symptoms in certain life scenarios, those with clinical depression or major depressive disorder find that they experience these feelings more often and more intensely than the average person. Drs. Katikaneni and Mathew are proud to offer comprehensive treatment for those struggling with their depression so they can get back to living their lives comfortably.
