At MARSAI CLINIC, we specialise in Complex and Resistant , that have been causing significant problems for patients, their families and carers, and also their GPs. Dr Saibal Guha has a special interest in holistic and algorithmic care for Complex Mood Disorder patients. He draws inspiration from similar services at the Black Dog Institute (Sydney) and other clinics in Canada and USA.
