Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Metzner "Dr. Metzner's comprehensive approach combines the best of medical practice, including skilled use of pharmacologic treatments, within a humanistic doctor-patient relationship. Dr. Metzner believes that individualizing treatment is the hallmark of effective practice. He is an experienced psychotherapist, who listens to his patients and applies therapeutic approaches from a wide range of well-studied methods, including dynamic, cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal and existential. He believes that the patient is central to the process and that life circumstances, psychological forces and biology all play a part in the disorders that bring people into treatment. He believes that collaboration with other professionals, who may be providing care for the patient, be they primary care doctors or other psychotherapists is crucial to good outcomes. Finally, he is dedicated to teaching and learning the state of the art in his field for the sake of his patients and everyone else he can benefit."
