More about Adefemi Taiwo, MD
Dr. Adefemi Taiwo is a dual board-certified psychiatrist in the fields of general adult psychiatry and addiction psychiatry. He has been practicing in the field of psychiatry for over eight years. Dr. Taiwo offers a mix of medication management in conjunction with supportive therapy in 30-minute follow-up visits.
He is also able to treat patients with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) or esketamine if they aren’t finding relief from medication. In his experience as a psychiatrist, Dr. Taiwo has seen the limitations of medications for patients. As such, having another effective treatment like TMS, which has given renewed life to many patients, is key.
Dr. Taiwo’s approach to clinical practice is based on a collaborative model with his patients being center stage. He seeks to involve them in their treatment decisions rather than assuming that he knows what is best for them.
Dr. Taiwo decided to get into the mental health field after seeing a close friend struggle with mental health and addiction while not being able to get the help he needed in his home country. Now, Dr. Taiwo is dedicated to giving his patients the support they deserve.
