Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wexler "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."
