Sharon Batista, MD
Sharon Batista, MD is a board-certified psychiatrist offering services to adolescent and adult residents in New York and California. She has a vast array of clinical interests; however, her specializations are women’s mental health, anxiety disorders, OCD and mood disorders. In her practice, Sharon’s philosophy of care is to integrate various tools to help patients feel better, which may include medication and self-help approaches.
Sharon’s interest in mental health care comes from having been exposed to psychiatry very early on during her first semester of medical school. She happened to choose an elective with a psychiatrist who now has been her life-long mentor ever since.
Sharon has published a handbook on AIDs psychiatry together with several colleagues. She enjoys cooking, learning about different cooking techniques, and her daily companion is her beloved bulldog, which is often snoring by her side.
