Dr. Lindsay Israel's Credentials
Accepting New Patients
Yes, this doctor is accepting new patients
I was born and raised in South Florida, and I attended the University of Florida for all of my undergraduate, medical school, residency and fellowship training. I was accepted into the junior honors medical program, which is an early admissions program at the University of Florida that combines the undergraduate and medical school degree to be completed in seven years. This is an honor bestowed upon only 12 students in the whole country every year. I met my husband in high school, and we have two amazing sons. I love living in South Florida, and I am proud to be able to provide much needed psychiatric care for my beloved community. As a physician, a mother, I understand the difficulty and sometimes even hesitation about seeking treatment for yourself or your child.I believe in honesty with my patients, regarding diagnosis and treatment options, so that my patients can make an informed decision for themselves. I want my patients to be part of the decision making, and this is achieved by educating patients on risks, benefits and alternatives of treatment. I want my patients to feel empowered, because their symptoms leave them feeling powerless and hopeless. One of my most important roles as a psychiatrist is to instill hope for my patients. Depression is a treatable condition, and now with cutting edge technology, of TMS therapy, we have even more treatment options for patients who have struggled with side effects of conventional treatments and symptoms affecting their ability to function. My job is to return patients back to functioning.This is how I would want to be treated, with honesty, dignity and compassion.
