Kamalika Roy, MD, MCR

As a board-certified consultation-liaison psychiatrist, I love working with people with cancer or other complex medical problems, including but not limited to neurodegenerative disorders, sleep disorders, delirium, and catatonia. It is crucial to treat and support psychiatric conditions often associated with multiple disease processes and treatment complications. As a member of the psycho-oncology team at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, I enjoy the opportunity to collaborate with various specialties to help my patients during the most stressful times of their overall care.  I have expertise in diagnosis, psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and electroconvulsive therapy. I conducted clinical research in pharmacogenomics, delirium, and pre-dementia cognitive impairment in the past. I strongly believe in shared decision-making in the process of treatment.
