Dr. Hanita Chhabra joined Greenbrook TMS in July 2016 as Medical Director in our Baltimore region. Dr. Chhabra is a board certified adult psychiatrist with sub-specialty certification in psychosomatic medicine. She was a consulting psychiatrist at Sheppard Pratt Hospital and Greater Baltimore Medical Center for 5 years before moving to Anne Arundel County. She was born and raised in the area in a family of all physicians. After completing medical school at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Dr. Chhabra started her training at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Obstetrics and Gynecology. She later changed to Psychiatry and completed her training at the University of Pennsylvania in 2006.
Dr. Chhabra is interested in caring for the most medically complicated and treatment resistant patients. This interest led her to complete the fellowship at Duke in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in 2013. She has since been practicing prescribing medications and/or TMS to some of the most challenging cases of anxiety and depression. Dr. Chhabra says she was drawn to TMS Therapy as a modality for treating depression because "Thanks to TMS, we are finally able to achieve rapid results for patients who have suffered a loss of quality of life/function due to depression. I consider it an honor to help restore hope and function to patients with depression, and I feel fortunate to have advanced training that allows me to stay on the cutting edge in the field of psychiatry so that I can offer my patients that absolute best in mental health care."
