MEET DR. CHANDRA

TeamChandraDr. Suruchi Chandra is a board-certified psychiatrist who specializes in integrative and holistic approaches for challenging emotional, behavioral, and medical conditions. After graduating from Harvard College with honors, she obtained her medical degree from Yale School of Medicine. She then completed a psychiatry residency at the MGH/McLean psychiatry program at Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Chandra’s integrative approach is evidence-based, supported by research, and the result of her clinical training at Harvard and Yale and on-going mentoring and studying with leaders in integrative medicine. Prior to moving to the Bay Area, she worked  at a clinic in the Chicago area that focuses on integrative treatment for children with psychological issues and developmental delays. Dr. Chandra also spent 4 years studying and working in a clinic focused on integrative approaches for chronic, complex illnesses, including chronic fatigue and autoimmune illnesses. It was during this time that she realized the importance of epigenetics and seeking to understand the individual factors that contribute to a patient’s condition.

In her current work, she attempts to identify and address the root causes of her patient’s conditions and then uses gentle and natural approaches, whenever possible, to help them obtain true wellness. She has special interests in food as medicine, environmental issues, and the gut-brain connection.
