Nikhil Nadkarni, MD

Specialty in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and Adult Psychiatry

I am interested in the intersection of technology and mental health for people of all ages. I am a UCLA-trained board certified Adult Psychiatrist and will be board eligible in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry in June 2021 upon completion of my fellowship. I am currently licensed to practice in California and Florida and work part time as a Clinical Team Lead for a company called healthPiper, which provides affordable concierge-level psychiatric care to children and adults.

My specific interests are in using technology to expand access to care, using data and measurement based care to improve mental health outcomes and exploring new modalities for treating psychiatric disorders. I am looking for opportunities to practice clinically while also innovating in my areas of interest.

I have extensive leadership experience in the medical field and in philanthropy. I also have a strong background in science writing and have been published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). In my free time, I enjoy recreational use of virtual reality technology, indoor cycling on my Peloton cycle and exploring both the culinary and geographic landscapes of Southern California with my wife.
