The specific causes of anxiety disorder, like other mental illnesses, are not known. It is very important to know that anxiety disorder is not due to personal weakness, bad upbringing, or other personal flaws.

Others may see an improvement by changing their diet and lifestyle habits and engaging in relaxation therapies. Dr. Hago will work closely with each patient to ensure that the best treatment plan for his or her needs is put into action.
