About

Bio

Dr. Lado graduated from the Arnold and Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy of Long Island University in 1983 where he received his Degree in pharmacy. While in college he received a scholarship to conduct Biomedical Research. He continued his training at the the Universidad Del Noreste in Tampico Mexico where he got his degree Medicine and Surgery. He was accepted to Mt. Sinai School of Medicine Fifth Pathway Program.He completed his internship in General Sugery in the Michael E DeBakey program at Baylor. He then completed his residency at the University of Texas in Houston Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. He is now practicing in Bonita Springs as a Board Certified Psychiatrist with Emphasis in Addiction. He has been Prinicipal Investigator in at least 10 clinical trials and and subinvestigator in about 80 Clinical Trials. He integrates the science of pharmacogenetics in the treatment with psychotropics to enhance targeted efficacy. He has appeared in various television and radio shows. The biggest challenge in the field of psychiatry are simply two fold. Making the correct psychiatric diagnosis and matching the medications with persons own metabolism. My practice has the ability to do both Computer Assisted Psychiatric Diagnosis and Pharmacogenetic Testing for Psychotropic Medication response which takes out the guessing game of matching the right medication for the highly probable diagnosis and patient metabolism. Pharmacogenetic testing is now possible in our facility and obtain results within 3 days.

Mixed feelings about this but thank you for the answer. I guess I don't think of it as a spending "spree" or manic behavior. It all just adds up and I don't have $ to cover it. Thanks, tho.

This was very helpful. Thanks! Thank you for your suggestion. MD ordered a "memory screen" by a psychologist. Unsure as to what that entails but am eager to get answers. Thank you!
