Welcome To Our Practice!

                                                                        We prioritize your mental health!

We are a group of motivated individuals who are enthusiastic about what we do and committed to making a difference. We are able to work together efficiently and provide our patients with creative solutions because of our varied backgrounds and skill sets. Our ultimate goal is to provide outstanding care and individualized treatment plans to the people we serve in order to improve their quality of life. With strong collaboration and a common goal, we want to have a good influence on mental health.

Suburban Behavioral Health Services, located in the picturesque towns of Oakbrook Terrace and Wheaton, Illinois, offers comprehensive psychiatric care to patients of any age. Our team is led by board-certified psychiatrist Mazhar Golewale, MD, who is excited to provide specialized care in a welcoming, courteous, and compassionate environment.

Our team of mental health specialists strives to improve our patients' quality of life and promote a stronger community. We treat patients holistically and educate them about their conditions. Our team routinely participates in continuing education and hands-on courses. We also routinely consult with clients' families about their collateral histories and interact with other therapists. Our mission is to offer comprehensive care that covers the physical, emotional, and social components of mental health. We strive to build tailored treatment regimens that promote long-term well-being by collaborating closely with our patients and their loved ones. Our dedication to continuous learning and collaboration keeps us at the forefront of advances in behavioral health care.

As a private practice, Suburban Behavioral Health Services offers the benefit of having a psychiatrist and therapist work together under one roof to coordinate our patients' care, closely monitor them, and make appropriate changes to treatment protocols as needed. With the tagline "thinking beyond," the team does more than just prescribe medication; they think outside the box, limiting the use of controlled substances and offering alternative treatments.

Suburban Behavioral Health Services provides new treatments, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), IV ketamine infusion, and SPRAVATO® (esketamine) intranasal therapy, for anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorders. We also include individual, family, relationship, and group counseling, as well as medication management.

The team is now accepting new patients and may book appointments within a few days. To schedule an appointment, call the office or book 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.
