Kadima specializes in advanced treatment approaches for a variety of neuropsychiatric conditions like depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, eating disorders, and others.
Our name “Kadima” (Hebrew for “forward”) embodies our Mission: to help our patients struggling with mental illness advance forward to more fulfilling lives by utilizing the most advanced and innovative brain treatments, administered skillfully by compassionate and caring providers.
Kadima Neuropsychiatry Institute was founded by David Feifel, MD, PhD, a master clinician, certified neuropsychiatrist and accomplished brain scientist. He was a full Professor of Psychiatry at UC San Diego for over 20 years, during which he established several successful clinical and research programs focusing on advanced treatments. In 2017, Dr. Feifel decided to resign his full-time tenured appointment at UCSD and establish Kadima in order to more effectively pursue his passion for developing and utilizing cutting edge, non-invasive, treatments for neuropsychiatric disorders.
Since its founding Kadima has helped hundreds of patients with treatment resistant conditions lead happier, more productive lives.
