The Clinic for Health and Medical Care (CHMC) is a German outpatient clinic specialized in Psychiatry, Psychology and Family Medicine. The clinic is located in the center of Dubai in an area called Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), which is a hub for medical specialists adhering to European and American healthcare standards. Dr. Kowal, in his capacity of a psychiatrist and family medicine doctor, as well as Dr. Schonder, the psychologist, provide services based on German and American standards. Psychiatric and psychological care require a constant presence of the specialists, therefore CHMC does not employ any rotating, visiting doctors. Year around, our psychiatrist and psychologist are dedicated to continuously providing high quality therapy during the treatment process. The treatment evolves along the therapy plan which is created during the initial, profound assessment of 1,5 hours. This initial investigation consists of a psychiatric and/or psychological evaluation and diagnostic measures, all of which performed in our clinic

Our German and American qualified psychiatrist and psychologist treat the entire spectrum of psychiatric and family medicine disorders offering short, middle and long-term assistance to patients from Dubai and the neighboring emirates in the UAE. As experts in the field of psychiatry and psychology, we relieve suffering, promote wellbeing and restore mental and physical health.  A distinguishing difference between a psychiatrist and psychologist is that a psychiatrist is specialized in the neurochemistry of the brain and provides medication to treat mental health disorders.  A psychologist utilizes evidence based “talk” therapy to promote desired healing and positive change.  If you suffer from severe symptoms that curtail your ability to function in daily life, it is advisable to make an appointment with the psychiatrist for a consultation.  If you are mildly or moderately impacted by symptoms while still maintaining a good level of professional and social functioning, an appropriate starting point would be to see the psychologist for an assessment. In some cases, it is advisable to seek a combination of psychiatric and psychological services to facilitate healing and prevent relapse.

Dr. Kowal and Dr. Schonder are an established treatment team who can assess your needs and provide the services you will benefit from the most. Their guiding principle is to always do what is in the patient’s best interest.
