The Citizens Specialty Hospital Psychiatry Department operates based on the core values of teamwork, respect, compassion, integrity and accountability. Department of Psychiatry is headed by Dr Venugopal Duddu who hold the membership of the prestigious Royal College of Psychiatrists. Our doctor provides high-quality, evidence-based care and consultations to patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings. We also work closely with our medical colleagues in assessment, diagnosis and treatment of their patients.
Our doctors frequently assess and advise on the management of patient’s mental health, including a wide range of organic psychiatric conditions, depression, anxiety disorders and somatization and other less common conditions. Through our outpatient service, we also provide counselling for patients suffering from psychiatric illnesses like psychoses, affective disorders and anxiety disorders. Whether we are treating inpatients, outpatients or collaborating with other Citizens doctors, our main priorities remain to offer patients care based on the latest medical evidence and doing so with a focus on maintaining patient’s dignity at all times.
