International Patients

American Center for Neuropsychiatry positioned itself as being a leading provider of psychiatric care in India for International patients, Expats and Non-Resident Indians across the globe. We follow treatment guidelines from the American Psychiatric Association which are quite possibly the gold standard for the treatment of psychiatric illnesses.

Dr. Kranthi Kiran , M.D. completed his residency training in Psychiatry and Behavioural Sciences from The Chicago Medical School under the supervision of Dr. Michael Alan Taylor, M.D, a world-renowned neuropsychiatrist and one of the pioneers in developing modern psychiatry and biological psychiatry.

Dr.Kranthi Kiran, M.D. also completed his fellowship training in Geriatric Psychiatry from the University of Hawaii. He is one of the very few fellowship-trained geriatric psychiatrists in the world.

Dr.Kranthi Kiran practised in the United States for about 20 years before his recent relocation to India which speaks volumes for his global clinical experience. Our doctor believes that learning is an ongoing process. He continues to consult with some of the leading psychiatrists and academics in the United States in case he is faced with a very complex or treatment-resistant patient. In the process, our patients have access to expertise from some of the best brains in neurosciences in the world.
