When mental illness does not respond rapidly to treatment, the situation often becomes extremely painful and may become resistant to treatment. Much time an effort on the part of the patient and the family may fail to yield progress.
My philosophy is to conduct a careful review of your condition, past efforts to provide effective treatment and to offer options that can be consider which may lead to effective treatment. The recommendations and options available will be presented to you as only you can make the decision about which path you want to follow to take you to recovery.
I strive to offer respectful, considerate and compassionate care along with the latest information about useful and helpful treatment strategies.
I am a Board Certified Psychiatrist with extensive experience in treatment utilizing psychotherapy and biological treatments including both medications and non-medication approaches.
My professional experience includes having served on the faculty of several medical schools, been a medical director of three psychiatric hospitals, conducted drug research to help discover what may be helpful to patients, having served as a consultant to a number of pharmaceutical companies, and having been chosen to introduce US medications to the European Union, Middle East and Africa as well as having provided training to other psychiatrists in 37 of the states of the USA for a number of antidepressants, atypical antipsychotics, mood stabilizers, and vitamins.
I am pleased to have been recognized by the American Psychiatric Association as a Distinguished Life Fellow of that organization for my contributions to the field of psychiatry.
