R. Ryan Patel, D.O., FAPA
- Title: Psychiatrist
I believe that every person is unique in who they are and adjust my treatment to meet their needs. I take a holistic approach to patient care, and customize treatment using a variety of formats including medications, counseling, and lifestyle strategies to improve health.
Because of my flexible approach, students find me easy to talk to and express their concerns.
I use measurement based practice methods, and evidence based medicine treatments. I believe that maximizing non medication options such as health habits and psychological techniques can help minimize need for prescription medications. I am comfortable managing complex medical and psychological needs.
I strive to help students achieve their fullest potential and help set a path for continuous self-improvement.
I adjust my supervision appropriate to the trainee's level of training and areas of growth. I believe that trust, compassion, while challenging oneself are important elements to improve knowledge and practice.
My clinical interests include learning and advancing treatments of anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, addictions, and wellness strategies for emotional health.
I am an Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
I am passionate about helping as many people as I can, and for this reason, I write the monthly blog for with strategies to improve emotional health called: u.osu.edu/emotionalfitness.
