Dr. Sina A Saidi has the following 2 specialties
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

This guy is the 'real deal' - the way psychiatrists should be. He has his dual degrees from Harvard Medical School, has worked at top places, and basically knows what he is doing. He pulled me out of depression, marriage, and job issues. He diagnosed severe lifelong ADHD that two other doctors missed and helped me get my life on track again. If you need a psychiatrist who is an absolute pro, then this is your guy.
Dr. Saidi is the best psychiatrist I've ever had. I've seen him for depression for several years, and over that time, my condition has improved immensely. His bedside manner is gentle and compassionate, and he always gives me great advice. He's extremely knowledgeable about the different medications, and he is always easily accessible. Highest possible recommendation.
I worked with Dr. Saidi for just over a year and, in that time under his guidance and treatment, I made more progress than I had originally thought possible. It was my first experience working with a psychiatrist so I did not really know what to expect. From initial contact onwards, Dr. Saidi made it very clear that I had made the right decision and the correct choice in him. He helped me to understand my own difficulties much better and, in turn, to make a lot of progress in overcoming them. He is extremely well versed in the most up-to-date treatment options and was very candid with me when discussing their respective benefits and downsides. He made me an active partner in deciding the course I ultimately took. I truly believe that I had the most effective and rewarding experience possible working with him and I have been reaping the rewards in both my personal and professional life ever since. I owe him and thank him for that.
I have been going to Dr. Saidi for about 18 months now. He is wonderful. He's definitely the best psychiatrist that I have ever been to and there have been many. What I like the best is that he is an excellent, excellent listener and observer. And he is not passive as so many are. What you are getting is the straight shot. It's honest and out of the box analysis and guidance. I love that. Otherwise, what are you really paying for? In addition, is is clear when you become a patient that Dr. Saidi really cares about you and your progress. He's in this to make people better. I give him my absolute highest recommendation. Just go and have a visit with him. You'll understand immediately.
