Dr. Rao established Aavishkar Psychiatric Clinic in 1993 with the aim of providing comprehensive treatment to emotional problems. She always believed that emotional difficulties cannot be dealt with medicines alone.
At Aavishkar, We help our clients through
- A systematic evaluation based on psychological tests
- Counseling & psychotherapy
Dr. Rao was perhaps the first psychiatrist in Private Practice in Mumbai to have a team of psychologists and counselors to facilitate treatment of the emotionally disturbed.
