“Psychiatric illnesses should be treated in the same way we treat other medical problems—with compassion, open dialogue, and a firm basis in science. Through accurate diagnosis and personalized care, we can achieve remission and restore quality of life.” – Dr. Cluver

Cluver Psychiatric Group

Mental illnesses— the most common medical problems in the world— affect one in five people.

Innovative and more effective treatments coupled with increased awareness and lessening stigma have led more people to seek treatment, get the help they need, and increase their quality of life. In fact, demand for services has outpaced provider capacity, particularly in high-growth areas like the Lowcountry. Cluver Psychiatric Group is proud to be the premier psychiatric practice on Daniel Island, with a focus on scientific diagnosis and treatment and personalized patient care.


Dr. Jeffrey Cluver, MD.

Throughout his career, Dr. Cluver has provided clinical care for patients along the full spectrum of mental illnesses and treatment settings, from in-patient care to outpatient clinics, addiction recovery, and therapeutic interventions. He is especially interested in treating adults with mood and anxiety disorders (such as depression, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, OCD, social and other phobias, PTSD, and panic disorder) using a combination of medication and psychotherapy.

When discussing diagnosis and treatment with his patients, Dr. Cluver approaches treating psychiatric diseases the same way we treat other medical illnesses. Initially, he focuses on identifying and clarifying the patient’s diagnosis in order to development an appropriate treatment plan supported by the most up-to-date scientific data and best practices. He believes in taking a tailored approach to each patient’s individual pharmacologic and therapy needs, and he diligently works with his patients to achieve and maintain remission of their symptoms.
