South County Psychiatry is one of Rhode Island’s premier behavioral health practices, specializing in the latest advancements in mental health treatment. Founded by psychiatrist Dr. Anthony Gallo, our practice is built upon 13 years of treating patients and a deep understanding of physical and mental health and how the two affect each other.

Our Psychiatry Services
We treat each patient with their particular goals in mind. Many patients tell us that they often do not feel heard by their providers, and from the very first session, our primary goal is to understand the particular issue that the patient wants addressed.
