Ram Pardeshi, MD
Ram Pardeshi, MD, is a talented and compassionate psychiatrist. He is the medical director at Mindful Care, a premier psychiatry practice based out of New York. Currently with locations on Long Island and New York City, with plans for expansion, Mindful Care is bridging the gap of waiting times for those who need care, now.
As long as he can remember, Dr. Pardeshi has been passionate about helping patients suffering from mental illness. He decided early on in his career to work in the mental health sphere, and has dedicated his immense talent and time towards both research and practice.
In 1988, he was awarded a research grant for fibroblast studies in schizophrenia, exploring the effect of various enzymes on the brain in the disease, contributing to the medical understanding of the illness while deepening his own insight. His extensive knowledge and understanding of all areas of psychiatry inform his compassionate approach to all his patients, providing a concrete path forward, even for those feeling desperate.
Dr. Pardeshi is constantly looking for ways to address the mental health crisis in New York and throughout America. With so many people unable to receive treatment due to high costs and lack of availability, he sees Mindful Care as the ideal solution for people who need somewhere to go right now.
With his decades of achievement and excellence, including his status as a ‘Distinguished Life Fellow’ with the American Psychiatric Association, Dr. Pardeshi is perfectly placed to pioneer the first mental health urgent care center in New York.
As medical director, he brings his knowledge and expertise to the role, and fosters creativity, innovation, and inspiration in every member of Mindful’s interdisciplinary team. Together with Mindful, he is excited to provide hope to thousands of individuals who are currently without care. We are thrilled to have him lead our team clinicians.
A word from Dr. Pardeshi
“Mindful Care is the perfect place to begin your journey to better mental health. I have spent decades practicing psychiatry, and have yet to find an establishment as warm, welcoming, and hopeful as Mindful, providing same-day care to those in urgent need of recovery and healing.”
