MORE ABOUT APSKC
Psychiatry Associates of Kansas City (PAKC) was founded in 1945 and is the largest private psychiatric practice in the Kansas City region. Our group is wholly owned and managed by our psychiatrists and is dedicated to maintaining our independence from the large corporate health care entities that have acquired private practices throughout the area and our nation. Our 12 Board Certified psychiatrists will be joined by two additional psychiatrists in 2017, including a child/adolescent subspecialist. We actively stay informed of the latest developments in psychiatry and recently formed a new division – Advanced Psychiatric Solutions of Kansas City (APSKC).
APSKC reflects our commitment to provide new, state-of-the-art, treatment and diagnostic modalities for depression and other psychiatric disorders. We have applied significant professional, financial, management and training resources to these efforts that will continue to evolve as we continuously monitor the developments in our field of mental health. We will offer only new diagnostic and treatment approaches supported by the best research and accepted standards of care.
APSKC currently offers two major options to our patients:
- Ketamine for Treatment Resistant Depression
- Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) for Major Depressive Disorder
We anticipate future additional options, such as:
- A standardized, uniformly applied, diagnostic and genetic testing approach for ensuring the earliest and most accurate diagnoses and medication selection for treatment response.
