Qazi Javed, MD

Dr. Javed is a double board certified integrative medicine physician practicing Adult, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

His practice seamlessly blends conventional psychiatric care with other evidence-based treatment models, including psychotherapy, orthomolecular medicine, nutrition, functional medicine, herbalism, and mind-body approaches.

Dr. Javed believes in the value of connections in creating and enhancing overall well-being. As human beings we have connections both with ourselves and with the world outside of us. Disharmony in any of these connections causes suffering, whereas harmony results in joy.

Attempting to understand this can lead us towards healing.

HOLISTIC
GOAL

“A person not in sync with nature and the natural order of things lives solely in the pursuit of his own happiness. This is doomed to existential failure. The goal of integrative psychiatry and my practice is to help my patients create peace and purpose in their lives.”
