He/Him/HisAdult Psychiatrist, MD Practice: Mindful Health Solutions Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Dr. Bakari Vickerson is a board-certified psychiatrist from Atlanta whose goal is to see every patient significantly improve. He first studied at Morehouse College before completing his psychiatry and integrative medicine residencies at Emory University. He fell in love with psychiatry during medical school as he began working with patients. To him, time stood still while he was able to talk with patients and get to know them, and that connection allowed for the most cohesive treatment plans.
Dr. Vickerson believes in holistic treatment. Treatment options such as psychotherapy, medication management, and other therapies are only one piece of the overall puzzle. For these treatments to succeed, he believes the patient’s lifestyle must work in favor of healing. Alternative treatments such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy and esketamine are other options that work alongside the patient.
To Dr. Bakari Vickerson, working with psychiatry patients is all about evidence-based treatment and resources. Mindful Health Solutions works with this evidence-based philosophy, which relies on patient-first care, science, and the expertise of our clinicians.
