Dr. Venkatesh Joins the Live Well Team as a Child Psychiatrist
Latha Venkatesh, MD, board-certified in child, adolescent and adult psychiatry, has been helping children and families her whole life. She comes from a family of doctors, and her father was a pediatrician. Venkatesh helped him at clinics in India, and even interned with him after receiving her undergraduate degree. She specialized in pediatrics in India. When Venkatesh moved to the United States, she completed her residency in pediatrics. As a pediatrician, she became interested in childhood neurology and development. Her interest led her to specialize in childhood psychiatry, specifically treating children with behavioral, emotional, and developmental disorders.

As an addition to the Live Well family, Venkatesh says her goal is to provide the best service for the children and families she serves. She aims to treat the child and family together, not separately. “I want to develop a good program here at Live Well,” she says. Venkatesh is accepting new patients. Medicaid, Medicare and all major insurance plans are accepted, as well as a sliding fee scale for those who qualify.
