Dr. Flavio Casoy
Champion Center Psychiatrist
Champion Center psychiatrist Dr. Flavio Casoy is the Chief Medical Officer for JSA Health California. Dr. Casoy completed his undergraduate and medical degrees at Brown University in Providence, RI where he concentrated on community health. He completed his psychiatry residency at the University of California, San Francisco and served as Chief Resident at San Francisco General Hospital. He also completed a fellowship in Public Psychiatry at Columbia University/New York State Psychiatric Institute.
He is board-certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. He has broad ranging experience as an emergency psychiatrist and most recently led one of the largest state psychiatric hospitals in the United States where he ran a 14-unit inpatient service. He has a small private practice where he primarily sees patients for psychotherapy.
Dr. Casoy’s primary mission is to ensure that everyone has access to quality mental health care, including, and particularly, individuals with serious mental illness. He is excited to explore the possibilities of telepsychiatry in bringing expert consultants to remote regions or to agencies that would otherwise not be able to afford a psychiatrist. He believes that quality care is rooted in clinical expertise, kindness towards the patient, deep humility about the limitations of our field and systems, and commitment to overcoming these limitations. He is originally from São Paulo, Brazil and is a strong practitioner of cultural formulation as a key feature in behavioral healthcare.
