Dr. Agrawal may recommend medication after a careful and thorough psychiatric evaluation if the patient is interested in that treatment modality. He prescribes medication in the context of an ongoing and engaged relationship with his patient. For Dr. Agrawal the relationship--no less than in psychotherapy or psychoanalysis-- is critical to the success of the treatment. He wishes his patient to feel known and to be a co-participant in the process. Each treatment regimen is tailored to the individual's symptoms, difficulties, and particular life experience and circumstances. Dr. Agrawal is careful to attend to the biological underpinnings of illness and obtains biomedical testing and consultation when necessary.
