The Drake Institute has been a worldwide leader in the non drug treatment of children and adults since 1980. David F. Velkoff, M.D., our Medical Director and co-founder, supervises all evaluation procedures and treatment programs. Dr. Velkoff earned his Masters degree in Psychology from the California State University at Los Angeles in 1975, and his Doctor of Medicine degree from Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta in 1976. Dr. Velkoff completed his postgraduate work on Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of California Medical Center at Irvine. He then shifted his specialty to Behavioral Medicine and underwent training at the Menninger Clinic in Topeka, Kansas to learn biofeedback technology. In 1980, he co-founded the Drake Institute of Behavioral Medicine.

Seeking to better understand the link between illness and the mind, Dr. Velkoff served as the clinical director of an international research study on psychoneuroimmunology with the UCLA Medical School Department of Microbiology and Immunology, and the Pasteur Institute in Paris.

Dr. Velkoff was a founding associate editor of the scientific publication, Journal of Neurotherapy.

Drake Institute Reviews

Just wanted to update our situation. After contacting Dr. Velkoff and meeting with him he is genuine in getting his patient the help that they need. He is providing additional treatment and assessment at no additional cost. I guess what has happened our PC did not coordinate our concerns with the Doctor in a timely matter. We are please for the efforts and Dr. V being genuine He even gave his personal cell phone to reach him directly if we don’t hear back from our PC. Overall we are happy that our child is getting the proper care now. There must be a reason why his clinic is super busy all the time.

I have a friend that has had her son being treated by this facility and wow can I see a difference! He used to “show off” all the time, always getting into something when she wasn’t looking and throwing temper tantrums. She absolutely did not want to put him on any drugs. After just a couple weeks of starting treatments he started improving, not all at once, but you could see him thinking through his actions a little more and generally just starting to calm down and communicate better. TO see him behave now versus how he acted before neurofeedback treatments is like day compared to night. The more I learn about Neurofeedback the less I want to see kids with ADD and ADHD on drugs – What great results I have seen from this facility!
