Following over 20 Years working within the NHS, Dr Nabavi has taken on a new challenge working as a full-time Consultant Psychiatrist and the Regional Medical Director for the Priory Gorup since November 2020.
He has extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with mental disorders such as Depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Adult ADHD, Autistic Spectrum Disorder (Asperger’s Disorder) and Personality Disorders.
He has provided several hundred independent psychiatric reports for the Criminal and Civil Courts since 2006.
Within criminal cases this includes the diagnosis of mental disorder, fitness to plead and stand trial, disposal, psychiatric (insanity) defence, risk assessment and sentencing (disposal) recommendations.
He also prepares reports within civil cases, where there is a need to assess mental disorder occurring after personal injury trauma, including ‘historic sexual abuse’.
Dr Nabavi’s other interests include Child Protection proceedings (parental assessment), Immigration, Extradition and Testamentary Capacity.
Dr Nabavi is able to assess the clients across the UK or in his consulting rooms in Birmingham. He is also able to offer virtual assessments.
Dr Nabavi’s aim is to provide prompt and thorough reports to the highest professional standards. On average, he completes the reports within two-four weeks. However, he would also consider urgent requests.
