Psychiatrist in California Philippe Levy, MD

Philippe Levy, MD

As an Internist-Psychiatrist, I believe in a collaborative, comprehensive, and holistic approach to mental health care. 
Modern medicine tends to put patients into boxes. The world of medical conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer becomes separated from psychiatric conditions like depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. I believe that this separation is artificial and harmful. When our chronic medical conditions become unmanageable, our mental health may suffer ” and vice versa. Through years of providing both direct medical and psychiatric care, I’ve developed a core philosophy of treatment for the whole person: an open-minded, compassionate, trauma-informed, and medically-oriented approach to mental health.
After my undergraduate degree in Classics at UC Berkeley, I received my M.D. degree from UC Davis School of Medicine here in Sacramento. I stayed at UC Davis for a 5-year residency program in Internal Medicine and Psychiatry. One of only about a dozen such programs nationally, I completed all the necessary training to become a general primary care or hospital-based Internal Medicine physician while simultaneously completing a Psychiatry residency program. This specialized training has allowed me to break down barriers between traditional medical and psychiatric treatments, as well as to reduce stigma and improve access to mental health care services. I strive to place my patients in the center of their health care journey across the spectrum of their experiences, and to integrate their mental health care within their chronic medical conditions. I have significant experience providing care through Telehealth platforms, and I especially appreciate the convenience for my patients.
