Meet Lakeside Behavioral Health
We began Lakeside with one practitioner: Dr. Ashok Yanamandala, MD, a psychiatrist who truly believes in offering every avenue of quality and evidenced based treatments to his patients. Based on this belief we have grown into a multi-site mental health facility that focuses on individualized care and treatment planning for our patients. In early 2017 we added two seasoned clinicians, Shelia Barnes, LCSW, and Ed Flynn, LPC to provide individual, family, and couples counseling.
In fall of 2017 we recognized an unmet need to address long term depression and added Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation to our practice; TMS can offer new hope and remission from depression when medication has failed to help. We strive to provide a variety of treatment options so that each individual has the choice to determine what treatment is best for them. Any moment we realize our clients are in need of services we quickly take steps to offer those services. Most major insurances and Medicare accepted.
