More about Dr. Nidhi Goel
She is a dual board-certified physician and specializes in Adult and Geriatric Psychiatry.
Her experience in a busy academic center (Maimonides Medical Center) as a Director of Geriatric Psychiatry and Attending Physician in an inpatient unit has given her expertise in treating varied aspects of mental illnesses over the last few years.
"I teach and supervise resident doctors and medical students and it forces me to stay informed with the latest biological and therapeutic treatments for psychiatric illnesses. I have a unique opportunity of supervising and training Geriatric Medicine fellows which gives me an edge in treating mental illnesses with co-morbid medical illnesses. This gives me the ability to help consider and diagnose a possibility of medical cause responsible for presenting psychiatric symptoms, thereby ensuring comprehensive and accurate treatment." - Nidhi Goel, MD on being questioned about her core strengths and area of expertise in the world of Psychiatry.
She also adds - "a comprehensive assessment is required to see how the biological, psychological, and social issues in someone’s past and present are interacting and contributing in the presentation of psychiatric symptoms and once a diagnosis is established then only a tailored treatment plan is developed to provide psychopharmacological treatment and brief psychotherapy if needed to alleviate these symptoms."
Dr. Goel specializes in Adult and Elderly Depression and Anxiety Disorders, Cognitive Issues, Mood disorders including Bipolar disorder and Psychotic spectrum disorders. She has an interest in OCD and Hoarding disorders too. She has done extensive research and presentations on this topic and has been nationally recognized and awarded.
