Dr. Rasheed values the importance of working as a team in the care and treatment of his patients at APS. He believes that the psychiatrist must work closely with the therapist, the school and the parents when treating a child or adolescent. Coordination of care for Dr. Rasheed is essential to eliciting symptom reduction and meaningful (and lasting) positive change in patients.
