Navin Dargani, MD, MPH
Narrative of Services:
The focus of my practice is OCD and OC-related disorders, for whom I use a combination of medication and/or EXRP. Being trained in both modalities, I am able to offer both services myself, a model that I find many patients appreciate. ~60-70% of my practice is comprised of patients with OCD or OC-related disorders, with an estimated total of 30 patients treated.
Facilities acessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes
I have 6 years experience treating OCD, beginning in my residency at The Zucker Hillside Hospital where I received specialized training in both psychopharmacology and CBT for OCD. I received further training in EX/RP at Penn’s CTSA in 2015. OCD and related disorders have been the focus of my private practice, which I began in January 2016.
Race/Ethnicity: Asian or Asian-American
I currently serve as medical director of Lexington Mental Health Services, NYC’s largest mental health provider for the Deaf community. In that role, I oversee a staff of therapists as well as personally see patients, and provide culturally sensitive treatment modalities that are compatible with Deaf culture.
