The Psychiatry & Behavioral Health Clinic at Island Hospital (IH) welcomes child psychiatrist Dr. Shad S. Ali to its staff. Dr. Ali will provide psychiatric care of children, adolescents, and their families.
Dr. Ali is board certified in both Adult Psychiatry and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, and a master’s degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. He received his medical degree from Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan.
With a strong passion, knowledge and expertise for all forms of psychotherapy, Dr. Ali takes an approach that combines both psychopharmacologic and psychotherapeutic interventions when caring for patients. The IH promise to “always place your emotional and medical needs first and foremost” resonates with Dr. Ali’s philosophy, and he is eager to help expand community access to high-quality and comprehensive mental health care.
“I chose to become a physician because I want to treat people, not just the condition that ails them,” says Dr. Ali. “My philosophy of care is to first listen and try to understand each person’s unique physiology, psychology, and social experience. By hearing and learning from each of my patients, we can collaborate in discovering diagnoses, alleviating symptoms, and identifying sustainable solutions.”
The Psychiatry & Behavioral Health Clinics is located at 2511 M Avenue, Suite G, Anacortes. For appointments or more information, please call (360) 299-4297.
