About Dr. Calzada

image106

Education and Philosophy

Dr. Calzada is a licensed Texas physician who utilizes the biopsychosocial model of disease. This model, which is both a philosophy and a clinical guide, takes a systematic and holistic approach to look at the whole person rather than just the disease itself.  This allows Dr. Calzada to examine all factors that may contribute to mental health issues including biological factors such as genetic traits that run in families and also may include co-existing diseases such as hypertension or diabetes; psychological factors such as stress and trauma; and social factors such as relationships, finances, housing and socioeconomic standing. Further, this approach allows for tailored treatment plans to meet the specific needs of each unique patient.


 Dr. Calzada began his academic career at the University of Texas in Arlington where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. From there he was accepted into the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, the oldest school of medicine in Texas, founded in 1891. During his medical school years Dr. Calzada was the recipient of the Carl J. Herzog scholarship for academic excellence and won a 2011 Practice of Medicine Essay Award in Oslerian Medicine. The annual winners are hand-selected by the Osler Scholars in the John P. McGovern Academy of Oslerian Medicine for creating an outstanding composition demonstrating a humane and compassionate attitude toward patient care. Upon graduating from UTMB school of medicine and having his Doctor of Medicine degree conferred upon him, Dr. Calzada matched into the University of Texas Dell Seton Psychiatry residency program where he spent time (2014-2016) training at multiple sites including UMC Brackenridge, Brackenridge emergency department, Dell Children's hospital, Seton Mind Institute, Shoal Creek psychiatric hospital, and the Texas Child Study Center. Dr. Calzada also spent time at the Austin VA outpatient clinic where he worked with veterans struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD and other mental health issues. 


"My pledge to you: I will actively listen to your unique story--what is troubling you, what is impairing you and what is distressing you. I will work in collaboration with you to primarily discover what your personal goals are for treatment and then secondarily formulate a mutually-agreed upon strategy for treatment, for achieving your goals. I will do this with empathy and compassion; I will do this with all dignity, respect and complete confidentiality; and I will do this without judgment or assumption."    --Israel C. Calzada, MD

Appointment Options

Telepsychiatry

Did you know that Texas residents are able to conduct their doctor's appointments online? This practice of medicine is known as telemedicine (also telepsychiatry). While there are requirements that must first be met (more on that later), the convenience and privacy that is provided through telemedicine is significant. You can: 

  •   Conduct your appointment from any location within the state of Texas. Whether this is from your home, office, school, car or any other place of choosing, you will not have to make physical visits to the psychiatrist's clinic (with few exceptions noted below). This means no transportation costs such as gas and time in Austin traffic, especially for individuals living further away such as Liberty Hill, Marble Falls, Buda, Kyle, Bastrop, or even as far away as El Paso. 
  • Access telemedicine through any desktop computer, laptop computer, tablet or smartphone. This allows for the most convenient and accessible doctor's appointments currently available. This means that your appointment could be conducted on your lunch hour or other break without having to take time off of work (or having to explain why you need to take time off of work). Further advantages are if you have children that make visiting the doctor's office difficult you can now complete your appointment from wherever you are on that day. 

What are the requirements in order to be eligible for telemedicine? You must:

  1. Be a Texas resident
  2. Utilize a Texas pharmacy
  3. Sign a telemedicine consent form
  4. Conduct your initial appointment face to face with your doctor. This is important because it helps to establish a relationship and alliance between the patient and the doctor and it allows the doctor to gain a more thorough picture of your health as some important symptoms may not be noticed through a telemedicine appointment but would be observable in a face to face appointment. In some cases, one or more follow up appointments may also be required by the doctor to be completed face to face, depending on unique factors such as severity of the illness, medication regimen and so on.  Call today for further details.

 

House Calls

While telemedicine provides convenience and added privacy it still requires an initial appointment to be held face to face with the doctor. To remedy this, Dr. Calzada will drive to your location to conduct the initial appointment. You choose where you would like to meet: at home, at the office, or any other location that is convenient for you (within a reasonable distance from the Round Rock Psychiatry clinic). Because of the availability of house calls you could not ever need to make the drive to the clinic as follow up appointments could be conducted through telemedicine. Contact the clinic today for further details or to set up an appointment.
