Dr. Efraim Keisari is a Psychiatrist located in Plainview, NY. Dr. Keisari draws upon his expertise in mental health as he collaborates with clients that face difficulties from depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, OCD, bipolar disorder, or phobias. He also works with clients that have trouble with insomnia, as well as those who feel overwhelmed by the stress in their lives from work, relationships, and navigating change.
Dr. Keisari begins each therapeutic relationship by getting to know the individual, including information about their background and their current issues with their mental health. From this understanding, he partners with his clients to develop an individualized treatment plan. When appropriate, this plan may include medication to help with the patient’s symptoms. Dr. Keisari then checks in regularly with his patients to see how treatment is going and whether or not there needs to be adjustments made. He may also encourage patients to adjust their routines with exercise and diet to promote healthy living.
Dr. Keisari earned his MD from St. George’s University School of Medicine. He completed his psychiatry residency at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, where he served as a Chief Resident. Dr. Keisari received additional training at Brown University in Forensic Psychiatry.

At this time, I do not accept insurance at my practice. Oftentimes, insurance companies create significant barriers to care that can affect our therapeutic relationship. By not taking insurance, I am able to offer a superior level of care and attention to my patients. That means no constraints in terms of the duration and frequency of appointments, and flexibility to create an individualized treatment plan that will best suit your needs. In addition, by not submitting claims to your insurance company, your care remains completely private.
If you have out-of-network benefits, you are welcome to submit claims to your insurance company. Many patients are able to receive partial or full reimbursements, depending on your specific out-of-network benefits. I can provide you with an invoice (a "superbill") to help with this process.
