Rawan Alshaikh, MD

I strive to provide the time, respect, and support necessary for my patients to safely share and explore their concerns.
As a professional in the healthcare field, I firmly believe that the approach taken towards caring for the patient has an integral role to play in patient outcomes. As such, I take an integrative approach to care; one that is patient-centered, healing oriented, and appreciative of the unique set of biological, psychological, social, and spiritual circumstances that contribute to an individual’s life and experiences. I am confident that the provision of patient-centered care that is also culturally responsive is effective in improving the outcomes for the patient and ensuring their satisfaction.
I believe that growth and healing begin with the patient-physician relationship. In this respect, I strive to provide the time, respect, and support necessary for my patients to safely share and explore their concerns. This is essential in promoting understanding and the development of strategies to heal and stay healthy. I am aware of the importance of including the patient and their social support system in the development of care plans. This ensures the establishment of a positive and effective relationship with the patient and their support system, which is critical in the healing process. I work with children as young as 3 years old, adolescents, and adults. I believe in a holistic approach and have experience in different modalities of psychotherapy, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy (IPT), family therapy, and Parent-Child Interactive Therapy (PCIT). These approaches are effective in addressing the individual patient’s needs, promoting the provision of holistic care.
