Dr. Preet Grewal, MD
Dr. Grewal moved to the United States from India when she was sixteen. After attending college in Michigan, she received her medical training from American University of Antigua and completed her residency at Albany Medical Center in 2015. Before joining the team at Skypiatrist, Dr. Grewal was the Medical Director and Chairperson of the HealthAlliance of the Hudson Valley, where she oversaw both adult and adolescent patients. Dr. Grewal comes to Skypiatrist with experience in both office-based treatment and telemedicine.
Dr. Grewal takes a compassionate approach to patient care. She understands that connection and comfort are critical to positive treatment outcomes, and strives to create both whether she sees people in-person or via a telepsychiatry platform. She has found that patients are more likely to attend appointments and discuss difficult topics when meeting from the comfort of their own homes than they are when in the doctor’s office. In addition to seeing adult patients, Dr. Grewal treats children ages seven and older. She can also provide services in Punjabi, Hindi, and Urdu.
In her practice, Dr. Grewal encourages patients to take a full-body approach to their mental health, incorporating physical activity as much as possible. She is a proponent of meditation and yoga.
