Psychiatrist in Folsom, California Shannon Suo, MD

Shannon Suo, MD

I completed my undergraduate studies at UC Davis with a BS in Zoology, focused on behavior. I attended University of Cincinnati School of Medicine for my medical degree and came back to Sacramento for a combined residency in Family Medicine and Psychiatry. I chose the combined practice of Family Medicine and Psychiatry because I saw the impact that psychological concerns had on the health of individuals and how often primary care physicians were not prepared to understand or treat these problems. I maintain Board Certification in both Family Medicine and Adult Psychiatry.

I worked in academic medicine for 11 years and have published in the areas of cultural psychiatry, personality disorders, geriatric medicine, pain medicine, and psychopharmacology while also teaching and seeing patients. I see adults of all ages and specialize in treating those with complex medical and psychiatric problems, including people from diverse backgrounds who may not have familiarity with the Western concepts of and approaches to psychiatric illness. I believe in a whole person approach to mental health and like to coordinate with other health providers in the care of my patients.
