Mitchell Cabisudo, M.D.

Dr. Mitchell Cabisudo is a double board certified child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist who has been trained in different schools of psychotherapy and has in-depth knowledge and understanding of the use of life-saving medications. Dr. Cabisudo crucially understands the limitations and unfortunate repercussions of the use of medication. Therefore prior to contemplating to prescribing, he integrates the basic fundamentals yet profound complexities surrounding a person’s life which can significantly dictate the overall changes in one’s behavior and emotions. He uses a complete approach to client care, and encourages his clients to participate in their treatment plan and care. His philosophy is to “listen, learn, and help” accommodating each client’s lifestyle.

Dr. Cabisudo immediately identified a need for quality mental health care in the Hudson Valley community and cofounded Vitality Physicians Group Practice. He built this practice with the goal of helping anyone, no matter their age or location, overcome mental illness. He is also certified in delivering TMS or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy. This safe and effective treatment for depression has been FDA cleared since 2008 as an alternative for patients who do not respond to multiple trials of medication.

Our three locations are designed and maintained to provide an atmosphere free of judgment and discrimination as one may experience in a hospital or regular doctor’s office. Our highly trained and compassionate clinicians at Vitality use the latest innovations in psychiatric care, including telepsychiatry for the delivery of psychiatric assessment and care through videoconferencing.
