OUR STORY

The Journey

Seated together at a table, Drs. Eric Arzubi and Reza Ghomi, the leaders and architects of Frontier Psychiatry, forged a bond rooted in their shared passion for psychiatric care. Together, they cultivated a vision full of unwavering dedication to providing care for the patients that needed them most; patients facing the seemingly insurmountable daily battle of accessing quality care for their mental health or addiction recovery needs.

Innovative Care for Rural Communities

Frontier Psychiatry provides telepsychiatry solutions for rural areas, overcoming geographical barriers to ensure accessible, comprehensive mental health care for remote communities.

Addressing barriers to care

Frontier Psychiatry was created in 2019 by passionate psychiatrists who believe that every community deserves access to great psychiatric care and addiction care.

Frontier Psychiatry addresses mental health disparities in Northwest states like Montana, Wyoming, and Alaska, where suicide rates are highest. We collaborate with local partners to overcome barriers to care and focus on underserved communities, including Veterans and Native Americans. Our approach involves tailored telepsychiatry services acknowledging the shortcomings of one-size-fits-all solutions. We also provide specialized training for future psychiatrists to ensure quality virtual clinical care. Rural areas face unique challenges in mental health and addiction care access, including availability, accessibility, and acceptability of services. Frontier Psychiatry is dedicated to tackling these obstacles in our mission.
