About Maryville Psychiatry

About Us

"I started Maryville Psychiatry in 2021 with the goal of offering world-class psychiatric care to the residents of Maryville and the surrounding areas of east Tennessee in hopes of reducing individual suffering and helping patients become the most optimal version of themselves. We offer cutting-edge neuropsychiatric care that rivals any other outpatient psychiatric clinic in the United States. Our treatments are evidence-based and focus on methods that are the most effective and the best tolerated. These include Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (NeuroStar TMS), psychodynamic psychotherapy and medication management. We do not just "throw medications" at you hoping something will help. We work with you to find the best treatment option to help you function at your best. Our general method with regard to medication is to find what I call a "foundational medication" and build up from that as needed to adequately control all your symptoms. In most cases, individuals rarely require more than one or two psychiatric medications if correctly diagnosed and optimally dosed. I avoid the use of polypharmacy at all costs as studies and clinical experience show it often does more harm than good. I also try and avoid controlled substances as much as possible. Unfortunately these can cause dependency issues when taken at higher doses over extended periods of time. With that in mind I understand that these medications are powerful tools that are required in some cases to stabilize psychiatric symptoms and help individuals function both at work and at home. My pledge and goal is always to give you the best care I can. Each patient we see is treated like family and given the absolute best neuropsychiatric care possible." – Dr. Justin Lapollo
