Welcome to Suburban Behavioral Health Services

Located in beautiful Oakbrook Terrace and Wheaton, Illinois, Suburban Behavioral Health Services provides comprehensive psychiatric services to patients of all ages. Led by board-certified psychiatrist, Mazhar Golewale, MD, the team is delighted to offer individualized care in a warm, friendly, and compassionate environment.

The team of behavioral health providers strives to make a positive difference in their patients’ lives and promote a healthier community. They take a holistic approach, educating patients about their conditions. The team regularly engages in continuing education opportunities and hands-on workshops. They also routinely speak with family members for a collateral history of clients and collaborate with other clinicians. In addition, the team trains students from local universities and gives them hands-on experience by shadowing the team during appointments.

As a smaller practice, Suburban Behavioral Health Services has the advantage of a psychiatrist and therapist working closely together under one roof to coordinate the care of their patients, monitoring and making the appropriate changes in treatment strategies as necessary. With the slogan “thinking beyond,” the team doesn’t just prescribe medication but thinks outside the box, minimizing the use of controlled substances and offering other alternatives.

Suburban Behavioral Health Services offers innovative treatments, including transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and ketamine intranasal therapy, for conditions such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder. They also offer individual, family, couple, and group counseling, as well as medication management. The team is currently accepting new clients and can schedule patients within a few days. Request an appointment by calling the office or booking online today.



Dear Patients,

Mental illness in general is a very complex interplay of biological, psychological, social, and environmental factors.

Treatment of mental illness is a lot more challenging than other illnesses we encounter in General Medicine. As a result of this complexity, it often happens that patients end up on multiple psychiatric medications giving rise to increased risk of drug-drug or drug-body interactions and adverse effects.

We at Suburban Behavioral Health strive to educate patients about the importance of healthy lifestyle like sleep, diet, the importance of close relationships, serving others, and avoiding alcohol and recreational drugs to help achieve a great outcome.

Use of benzodiazepines like Alprazolam (Xanax), Clonazepam (Klonopin), Diazepam (Valium), and sleep aids (Ambien, Restoril) have long term consequences like addiction/ dependence, cognitive problems like memory, concentration, and wakefulness issues. We at SBHS will work to minimize use of those class of medications.

If patients are using Alcohol, Cannabis or other Substances that are deemed abusable by the treating clinician, patients will be asked to abstain from their use in order to treat their mental health conditions effectively. Requests for stimulants to treat ADHD and related conditions may not be considered if the patient is either using currently or in the recent past. If the patient is willing to stop using these substances, sometimes detox in a hospital may be required depending upon the substance/s being used.

A drug screen may be requested by the treating clinician before start of treatment and at random times thereafter.

We hope that you understand and work with us in this regard. If you do not agree, in that case we may not be the right choice for you and we understand that and still wish you best in your health and we hope you find that right fit for your healthcare needs.
