Dr. Richelle Strauss Porapaiboon, MD
Uptown Psychiatry Specialists, Inc.
Psychiatrist (Illinois: 036121844)


Please allow me to introduce myself! My name is Richelle Strauss Porapaiboon, MD, but patients call me Dr. Richelle or Dr. P. I am a Chicago trained Adult, Child, and Adolescent Psychiatrist. I specialize in psychiatric medication management of children, adolescents and adults, and I am accepting patients of all ages at this time. I generally manage the following conditions:

- Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder
- Autistic Disorder and Asperger's Syndrome
- Major Depressive Disorder
- Bipolar Disorder
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
- Panic Disorder
- Schizophrenia and Schizoaffective Disorder

My philosophy of practice is evidence based at it's core, and my evaluations often include laboratory or other screening to rule out general medical causes. In addition, I enjoy offering patients consultation on evidence based alternative therapies and nutritional guidance as appropriate, and as their interest dictates. I partner with local psychotherapy groups to assist patients with coordinating quality therapeutic treatments in addition to our pharmacological interventions.

I am proud to serve the community as the Medical Director for the Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program and see patients in the Adult Intensive Outpatient Programs at Chicago LakeShore Hospital. There I am often able to expedite inpatient psychiatric hospitalization, should the need arise. In this manner, I look to provide continuity between all possible levels of psychiatric care for my patients.
