Dr. Karan Padda is a licensed physician and psychiatrist-in-training with an interest in sports and mental performance. He is a former collegiate tennis athlete who recognizes that athletes face important challenges related to the topics of anxiety, frustration, focus, confidence, motivation, and setbacks.

Dr. Padda is completing his psychiatric residency training and plans to pursue advanced fellowship training in consultation-liaison psychiatry, developing expertise in the diagnosis and management of psychiatric disorders that co-occur with general medical illness, such as neurological disease (epilepsy, stroke, dementia), heart disease, diabetes, thyroid disease, autoimmune disease, cancer, and HIV.
