Dr. Bagdade has worked as a Licensed Psychologist in the Twin Cities area since 2004. During that time, he has focused primarily on psychological assessment of adolescents and adults in a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient settings, including schools, medical clinics and, most recently, PrairieCare. Dr. Bagdade believes that psychological assessment can be an important asset to aid clinicians and patients with diagnostic impressions and treatment recommendations. Collaborating with a multidisciplinary team has been a rewarding way to discuss the results of assessments and promote the most effective patient care. Dr. Bagdade also has a special interest in weight management and obesity related issues. In fact, outside of PrairieCare, he assesses individuals’ readiness for bariatric surgery from a psychosocial perspective. During his free time, Dr. Bagdade enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf, running and suffering as a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan.
