My name is Efosa Airuehia, MD, DABAM, DipABLM, FAPA, and I am a quadruple board-certified psychiatrist practicing at Prime Psychiatry in Frisco, Texas.
My psychiatry training commenced at the West Midlands School of Psychiatry in Birmingham, England, where I obtained my membership with the Royal College of Psychiatrists, England (MRCPsych). I subsequently moved to the United States, where I completed three years of residency training in general psychiatry and then an additional two years of training in child and adolescent psychiatry with the University of Missouri. This was shortly followed by my board certification in addiction medicine. I am an honorary fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, a member of the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry, and a member of the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine.
My extensive training and work experience allow me to render individualized professional care for adults with various mental health disorders and addictions using evidence-based practices. My education and work in Nigeria, England, and the United States have exposed me to patients from various ethnic backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses, and consequently, I have a broad cultural overview as it relates to patients with mental health issues. Just as notable has been my engagement in academic psychiatry, teaching numerous medical students, residents, and nurses and giving presentations, engaging in research, and publishing articles in medical journals.
I regularly update my knowledge base by being a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and the American Board of Addiction Medicine. This requires me to stay abreast of clinical updates and scientific studies, which ensure patients get the best treatment approved by the scientific community. When appropriate, I collaborate with other professionals to ensure the best care for my patients.
I have openings for new patients and accept both self-pay and various insurance plans.
