Care Philosophy

My practice integrates European and American medical philosophies and is devoted to the diagnosis, and optimal, individualized treatment of psychiatric, neuropsychiatric and neurological conditions. I practice traditional, time-intensive medicine unencumbered by the corporate bottom line. The patient comes first. Because decisions about your medical care should be made between you and your doctor, in the consulting room, not in a boardroom, nor by a clerk on a switchboard, I do not participate in managed care plans.
