Richelle Strauss, MD

Psychiatrist located in Uptown, Chicago, IL

Meet Dr. Richelle

Dr. Richelle Strauss (formerly Porapaiboon), or as her patients affectionately call her, Dr. Richelle, is a trained Adult and Child Adolescent Psychiatrist serving the Chicago metropolitan area from Uptown Psych’s offices here in the Windy City. Widely known in the Uptown neighborhood and surrounding area for her tender, attentive care, she is the first name basis with most of her patients.

She received her undergraduate degree from Purdue University and graduated from medical school at the University of Florida. She completed her residency at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital and completed a fellowship at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.  

She specializes in psychiatric medication management of children, adolescents, and young adults, but works with patients of all ages. At Uptown Psych, she strives to provide a secure environment for adults, adolescents, and children with behavioral and attention disorders. A secure environment is enhanced through Dr. Richelle’s use of Telepsychiatry: using telecommunications technology, usually videoconferencing, for her assessment and treatment. Thus, her clients are in a space they choose.

Her philosophy of practice is evidence-based at its core, and her evaluations often include laboratory or other screening procedures to rule out general medical causes. In addition, she offers consultation on evidence-based alternative therapies and nutritional guidance as appropriate, and as your individual needs and interests dictate.

 

*Dr. Richelle is not currently accepting new patients.
