Psychiatrist in California Nicomedes Sansait, MD

Nicomedes Sansait, MD

I believe in the importance of family history, genetics, psychological make-up, and life experiences; all of these things shape a person.
I became interested in Psychiatry when I was young. I observed the challenges and suffering of individuals and families because of mental illness. From my own experience, I knew firsthand how emotions could affect physical health. I came to appreciate the emotional strengths and intellectual abilities of each person. I believe in the importance of family history, genetics, psychological make-up, and life experiences; all of these things shape a person. I ascribe to biological psychiatric treatment (pharmacotherapy) as well as different forms of psychotherapy based upon each person’s strengths, interests, and needs. I treat a variety of illnesses including mood disorders (depression and anxiety), childhood disorders, and thought disorders.
I graduated with a Doctorate of Medicine from Manila Central University. My training at the University of Tennessee (Memphis) enriched my understanding of adult and adolescent mental illnesses and available treatments. I have worked in community mental health centers, nursing homes, and hospitals. Importantly, my work with patients incorporates the knowledge and sensitivity gained from my life journey. On a personal note, I am married and a father of four children who are all pursuing careers in healthcare.
