About Akhila Takkallapalli, PA-C
After working in multiple specialties of medicine, Akhila came back to outpatient psychiatry after realizing that mental health is the missing link in patients’ attainment of true wellbeing. She believes there is a crucial need now, more than ever, for medical providers to emphasize the importance of caring for one’s emotional and spiritual self just as much as the physical. She feels fortunate to serve people in times of need and to be a reminding force of who they can become. Using evidence-based medicine and holistic approaches to mindcare, Ms. Takkallapalli offers her patients compassion and respect as she identifies how to attain the best results for the patient. In addition to her devotion to mindcare, Akhila also performs and teaches classical Indian dance, a practice that has afforded her lessons of discipline, perseverance and insight into the human condition that continually strengthen her work as a provider. Ms. Takkallapalli provides medication management for a diverse range of mindcare needs.

I felt very good about my experience with this practice! Akila was very kind and sweet too! She listened to my concerns and my struggles with empathy, and was very understanding with my life situations. She thoroughly explained the medications she recommended I try, and helped me choose the most beneficial one to try.
