We believe that the mind and body should be treated as one. This is the reason that UNITAS has an integrated approach to medical care. Patients are evaluated by a multi-specialty team before a treatment plan is devised and developed. During the initial evaluation, a patient will be seen by a psychotherapist, primary care physician, and psychiatrist. They will collectively design a unique holistic treatment plan which will address all of an individual’s health care needs. This is how we can address all your medical needs in an integrated, one-stop location.
Unitas is a voluntary not-for-profit behavioral health and primary care clinic licensed by the NYS Office of OMH, the office of OASAS, and via the DSRIP Project 3.a.i, can provide primary care services. It was first organized by Dr. Roman Pabis in 1983 as an Outpatient Mental Health Clinic certified by the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH), specifically for Polish and other East European Slavic persons. A few years later, to meet the demand, a chemical dependency program was added that is certified by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS). Most recently Unitas added physical health to the services it can provide to the communities of New York City.
