Welcome to Lado Healing Institute

I would personally like to welcome you to my practice’s website. My name is Dr. Leonard A. Lado, MD, Founder and Medical Director of Lado Healing Institute. I am a board-certified Psychiatrist serving the population of Marco Island, Fort Myers, Naples, and Southwest Florida. I have been here since 2002 and intimately know the need of this community. We have remained independent and stable all these years to give our community more choices and not be limited by big treatment centers’ lack of personal attention.

We have been ahead in the advancements and introduced to this community pharmacogenetic testing. We are now introducing new treatments and technologies such as (TMS) TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION and Ketamine for rapid recovery from depression. We never forgot America’s epidemic of opioid and fentanyl crisis and introduced to this community the treatment of suboxone so you can detox without entering the hospital. Dr. Leonard Lado MD pharmacy background gives him access to pharmaceutical combinations not seen elsewhere.

We introduced state-of-the-art software to communicate with insurance companies, so everyone with insurance has access to us. Dr. Leonard Lado has been an educational leader to nurses, physicians, and nurse practitioners.  Please take a look at our YouTube channel to find all interviews with television and reporters across the county. We welcome you to our practice and see how you regain your life and live again. We have a compassionate staff that cares about you.

Personalized Genetic Testing

The biggest challenge in the field of psychiatry is simply two-fold. Making the correct psychiatric diagnosis and matching the medications with the person’s metabolism. My practice has the ability to do both Computer Assisted Psychiatric Diagnosis and Pharmacogenetic Testing for Psychotropic Medication response, which takes out the guessing game of matching the right medication for the highly probable diagnosis and patient metabolism. Pharmacogenetic testing is now possible in our facility, and we obtain results within 10-14 days. An excellent web site on how this technology works in our practice is best described by a personalized medicine company AssureRXHealth. Right now, in doctors’ offices all over the world, patients are given medications that either doesn’t work or have harmful side effects. Often, a patient must return to their doctor over and over again until the doctor can find a drug that is right for them. Pharmacogenomics offers a very appealing alternative. Leonard Lado MD now provides a simple and rapid test of your DNA. This gives me the ability to determine if the patients have the possibility of suffering a severe negative reaction to the medication due to side effectsPharmacogenomic testing is now available in LeeCollier and Charlotte counties, and right here in our Bonita Springs office serving the entire Fort Myers area. 

NeuroStar TMS Therapy is the Right Choice

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine. While the patient is awake and alert, NeuroStar TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.

Telemedicine & Telepsychiatry

The Lado Healing Institute is proud to provide telemedicine and telepsychiatry technologies to provide psychiatric care over the Internet. Dr. Lado can provide professional services over the Internet. Telepsychiatry and some areas of telemedicine are here to stay. It has many advantages in that a physician can bring his clinical skills to a distant place where help is needed, such as rural areas, correctional and jail systems, and inpatient psychiatric facilities. However, telemedicine is very much limited to areas where data from the patient’s condition can be ascertained through history and in the case of psychiatry the mental status exam. Other new technologies, such as computerized testing to validate and support the psychiatrist diagnosis. The most critical thing I was taught in my training first from surgery, if you don’t know what you’re looking at, how can you treat it. The same applies to psychiatry. If you don’t have an accurate diagnosis, how can you provide effective treatment?
