Welcome to a very special edition of Living Healthy.

On this episode, we speak with Dr. Neel Doshi, DO, a psychiatrist with Kaiser Permanente Orange County, about the importance of mental health and how exercise can act as an additional form of treatment for combating mental illness. 

Dr. Doshi is double board certified in Adult Psychiatry and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Dr. Doshi’s comprehensive treatment approach focuses on an individual’s total health: mind, body, and spirit. He believes that by identifying and addressing underlying causes, implementing healthy lifestyle changes, psychotherapy, and taking medication when necessary, he can determine the best treatment plan and work with his patients to restore their emotional and mental well-being.
