Dr Faisal Mamsa

Dr. Faisal Mamsa is an American  trained   psychiatrist ( M.D.);  Sanford School of Medicine and University of SD.
His multi-modal treatment methodology involves combining expertise in psychopharmacology (medical treatment) with psychotherapy. This is based on his background in brain chemistry research, training in cognitive behavioral therapy and psychoanalysis from American Psychoanalytical Association and the hence forth belief in the additive effect of various treatment modalities in conjunction, rather than just prescribing medication.
Dr. Mamsa is known for giving time to his clients and believes that the more the issues are discussed in length, layers after layers, the more likelihood of being able to peel through to the core of the predicament, from where the actual treatment commences.
