About us

The Practitioners

Dr. Ali El-Menshawi and Dr. Aysha Meloukheia founded the Psychiatric Group of Orlando in 2004 to bring exceptional psychiatric care to the Orlando area. Dr. El-Menshawi and Dr. Meloukheia have since assembled a compassionate and proficient team of healthcare providers and staff alike. Here at the Psychiatric Group of Orlando we believe mental health is a priority. Our providers and staff will remind you that you are not alone: we are here to listen, to understand, and to support. 

Each patient is met with respect, concern, and attentiveness as all patients deserve the absolute best service, and to feel comfortable in an environment that fosters mental health: taking care of yourself first. We offer psychiatric care for adults and children, as well as therapy for mental health. 

We currently have 7 providers, which includes 3 Doctors of Psychiatry, 
and 4 Therapy Counselors. 

Please feel free to give us a call with any questions or concerns you may have at (407)-275-0745. 

We look forward to hearing from you!
