Your Kansas City Psychiatrists

Psychiatrists are physicians with advanced, specialized training in diagnosing and caring for people with behavioral and mental health conditions. Because they hold medical degrees, they can prescribe and manage medications. All Meritas Health Psychiatry doctors are board certified, so you know they’re knowledgeable about the latest treatments and developments in behavioral and mental health care.

Our Treatment Philosophy

You’ll appreciate our holistic, conservative approach to care. Count on your psychiatrist to provide you with as much information as possible about your condition and your treatment options. We believe that “through more education, there is less medication.” Expect to build a strong connection with your provider as you work together to create a care plan that improves your physical and mental well-being.
