Tessa Zompanis and Mariya Shavausky both have over 10 years of medical and mental health experience Tessa and Mariya both started their careers in soho nyc so they had the idea to start their shared practice there. As well they experience the same problems with trying to provide thorough care to their patients. They found patients were often coming to them with side effects, polypharmacy, ineffective medications, long wait times, inability to find providers, or feeling overall lost in the health care system. Tessa and Mariya also felt lost on how to change things. Which brought them to the same vision, and this is how they came up with the treatment model of SOHO Psychiatry. The goal of Soho Psychiatry is to provide ease of access and personalized thorough care with a team approach.
Soho psychiatry prioritizes the ease of accessing care for patients. They facilitate this through all facets of their practice. Telepsychiatry has been a mainstay of this value. Mariya and Tessa also value ease of contact between sessions so they provide each patient with a personal portal and email address to guarantee rapid communication with office staff and providers.
