UR Medicine's Approach

We offer individual therapy, group therapy, psychiatric medication evaluation and medication management (for patients enrolled in Mental Health & Wellness services), and psychological testing (for established patients).

All services are provided by a bi-lingual psychiatrist, psychologists and therapists. We serve as a training site for psychiatric residents and other student/learners.

What Sets Us Apart?

Lazos Fuertes was launched as the first Spanish-language mental health clinic in Rochester. Over 20 years later, the clinic has grown considerably and is also now a training site for Spanish-language psychiatry residents and trainees. The clinic has a unique collaboration with the Latino community of Rochester.

Some Lazos Fuertes patients receive primary care at our Medicine in Psychiatry Service office, delivered in a cultural- and language-sensitive manner by bilingual providers.


We serve you in the Rochester metropolitan area and surrounding region.
