Care Philosophy

I have practiced medicine for more than 2 decades now. My expertise is in biological psychiatry and psychopharmacology. I am currently integrating functional medicine into my practice philosophy and approach to care. I have worked as a private practitioner, as staff psychiatrist -- in-patient and out-patient -- in a number of healthcare systems, as Director of Consultation/Liaison Services, as team psychiatrist for an NFL franchise, as physician wellness psychiatrist for a large managed care consortium, and as Director of a university teaching hospital's psychopharmacology clinic. I strive to remain state of the science, having held -- and currently holding -- academic positions at several medical schools, and having served as a web-based psychiatric consultant for primary care physicians and other medical specialists. I emphasize collaboration with a patient's treatment team. This is paramount to optimizing quality of healthcare and, in turn, to treatment outcome.Read more

in Naples, FL |
Dr. Wexler has been my treating physician for 14 years since 2002. I was diagnosed with rapid cycling bi-polar disorder in 1997 and had seen several doctors, but was still experiencing mood fluctuations, and had difficulty managing the demands of my career in high technology. Under Dr. Wexler’s care I became stable and have remained so ever since. His approach is inclusive. He explains complex treatments and we make decisions together. He is a truly exceptional psychiatrist!

I was on an anti-depressant for over twenty years that was no longer working. I didn't realize that was the reason for my depression and anxiety. I was recommended to Dr. Wexler and he knew what the problem was immediately. My biggest concern was worrying that I was going to have major mental issues. He weaned me off of the previous medication and started me on the new medication at the same time. I had no bad symptoms and the new medication is right for me!

Dr Wexler is an amazing doctor and very caring and understanding! After years of being undiagnosed he was the only Dr who was able to understand my condition and treat it! He is a great listener and always responds very quickly. I would recommend him highly

An ex-pat from Michigan living in Shanghai, I was so fortunate to have been referred to Dr Wexler to treat my depression.  doctor in Shanghai told me Dr Wexler was the best she’s known either in the US or abroad.  My therapist concurred.  Not sure how he did it, but I am feeling better than I have in decades.  I saw Dr Wexler for 10 months, and he continually stressed that I had to keep working with my therapist, exercise, pay attention to my diet, and get consistent rest.  You’re the best, Dr W
