Dr. Hashmi started his private psychiatry practice in Lawrenceville, GA in 2004. He has expanded the company into a full-service, behavioral health organization. The company specializes in private practice, inpatient medicine, program development, provider staffing, hospital consultation and liaison services, medical directorships, and program management.
