Precise diagnosis and specialized treatments

A method that aims for healing

Dr. Pallanti’s mission is to offer precise diagnosis that extends beyond behavior, filling the gap between psychiatry and other medical disciplines. Starting from this diagnostic approach, he wishes to offer the latest neuroscientific personalized care by overcoming the obsolete, standardized guideline treatments, thus maximizing the potential for healing and recovery.

Over the past decade, the World Health Organization (WHO) has indicated Recovery as a realistic goal to pursue to bridge the gap between psychiatry and other medical disciplines. The perspective advocated by WHO reminds everyone of a greater commitment because it establishes that most psychiatric disorders can be cured, including patients’ recovery.

To achieve this, initiating the front-line scientific research is necessary. Dr. Pallanti uses all the resources possible to achieve a precise diagnosis without which treatments do not work fully. He aims to integrate different disciplines and different levels of care within the same project, depending on any individual’s needs.

Dr. Pallanti’s priority is to treat his patients from the acute and critical phases up to the reconstruction of their life in their family and social context.

In addition, Dr. Pallanti undertakes ― both nationally and internationally ― to disseminate informations regarding prevention, diagnosis, and treatment through his education programs. Even the experience of the disorder itself must be exploited to improve a patient’s competence and awareness, to translate into an opportunity for amelioration and recovery.

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) defines “recovery” as including several tiers: «Recovery from Mental Disorders and Substance Use Disorders involves a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.»

Having improved one’s condition does not mean that one should no longer take prescribed medicines or stop psychotherapy or Neuromodulation therapies, because the full "recovery" of the person constitutes a process that extends to those changes aimed at improving the holistic well-being and quality of one's life.
