Covid-19 Update: 

In order to restrict social interactions and slow the spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), Bay Area Psychiatry will be closing the office to all foot traffic beginning Monday, March 23, 2020. However, will make every effort to operate “business as usual”in every other way. Our staff will continue to answer phone calls and emails, handle scheduling issues, medication questions, etc. During this pandemic, we will be implementing web-based patient visits and, on rare occasions, telephone visits.  Using these techniques, we will be able to avoid any interruption in patient care. Please feel free to reach out to us through our email bayareapsychiatrygroup@gmail.com or call the office at 281-218-8181. Our staff is happy to discuss these changes in detail or assist with procurement of any necessary forms from our Web site for new patients.

Mental health issues can be debilitating and make it difficult for individuals to function at an optimal level. Untreated, these issues can often have a negative effect on family, friends and other aspects of life as well. Medical treatment is often needed to treat these conditions effectively.  At Bay Area Psychiatry Group (BAPG) we are committed to providing psychiatric services for the betterment of the mental health of the community.  We offer a broad spectrum of outpatient psychiatric services including assessment, medication management, family, children, adolescent and couples therapy, as well as neuropsychological testing.

Serving the Clear Lake Area since 1995, BAPG has grown out of the private practice of board certified psychiatrist Robert N Earle MD. Since its inception, Bay Area Psychiatry Group has evolved into a group of independent practitioners dedicated to providing comprehensive mental health services to the community in a caring and efficient manner while continuously improving quality of care.

Individual practitioners who comprise BAPG are:

  • Robert N Earle MD
