About Artin Terhakopian

Dr. Terhakopian is a board-certified psychiatrist. He earned his M.D. through the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS), the only military medical school in the United States, in 2002. He completed a broad-based medical internship and psychiatry residency training at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where he treated hundreds of Soldiers and their families affected by the trauma of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. He then earned his M.P.H. back at USUHS and completed a fellowship in Disaster and Trauma Psychiatry in 2008. Many thousands of patient encounters have honed Dr. Terhakopian's skills in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of depression, anxiety, alcohol/substance use disorders and particularly PTSD. Because of his training in medicine in addition to the social and psychological sciences, Dr. Terhakopian is able to also assess for medical conditions which can and in many cases contribute to mental health problems. This type of comprehensive evaluation significantly improves the odds of treatment success. Terhakopian has authored several manuscripts and book chapters regarding PTSD and effects of anxiety on health and well-being.

I wish I could help but can't think of anything. Dr. Terhakopian has stuck with me and turned my thinking to much better and healthier thoughts. I've had ups and downs but he has been a constant positive. I guess I think having this consistency is important.

I actually am very, very impressed with Dr. Terhakopian and all of his staff. It's been the best care provider I've ever had access to. I always feel listened to. All of the nurses and the staff are very kind, very friendly. They remember me, when I come back. They treat everyone respectfully, and are just such a joy to talk with, especially Cathy. She's one of my favorites and Dr. Terhakopian is an absolutely wonderful man. He genuinely cares about his patients. He is very, very knowledgeable. He explains things well, and he doesn't have any judgmental or negative air about him. He always treats everybody with respect and dignity and I absolutely wish all care
