Robin Kohli, Psychiatrist

I was raised in eastern North Carolina and first left home for high school, graduating from North Carolina School of Science and Math in 1996. Afterward, I studied psychology and studio art at UNC Chapel Hill, and while there worked in the Department of Psychiatry as a research assistant. I attended medical school at Saba University School of Medicine and completed my medical training in Charleston at Medical University of South Carolina. I am board certified in child, adolescent and adult psychiatry. I’ve been at NC State since 2012 where I serve as the Chief of Psychiatric Services and appreciate the chance to get to know and help students.

Jeffrey Parks, Psychiatrist

MD (1999) Psychiatry, Medical College of Georgia

I completed my psychiatry residency training at UNC Chapel Hill in 2003 and have been practicing inpatient, emergency, and outpatient psychiatry here in North Carolina since that time. I have worked extensively with individuals with mood and anxiety disorders, psychotic disorders, and substance use disorders over those years.  I favor an integrative model of care that involves psychotherapy tailed to the individual’s specific needs, judicious and evidence-based use of psychotropic medication where appropriate, along with attention to nutrition, exercise, and healthy methods of stress management. Outside of hospital and private practice work, I have also enjoyed working in a range of volunteer opportunities since 2003 including supervision of psychiatrists in training and providing medical services for homeless mentally ill individuals through the IFC shelter program in Chapel Hill.
