About

LIFELINE PSYCHIATRY

Welcome to Lifeline Psychiatry Services. We want to make your visit as educational as possible. Hopefully, you find us as an important resource to get information about mental health treatment.

LIFELINE Psychiatry was established in 2009 to provide psychiatric services in a comfortable and inviting private setting where patients are treated with respect and dignity.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

WHAT WE DO

At Lifeline Psychiatry, we take quality of service very seriously. At each and every encounter, all services are delivered by an experienced and board-certified psychiatrist, not by nurse practitioners or physician assistants. Even returned phone calls and after-hours emergency messages are managed by the same psychiatrist who provided direct care.
