Over the 29 years I have practiced almost exclusively Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, it could be said that I lean towards an "Education Model." This means providing information about the nature of mental illness, discussing evaluations and providing explainations about the method of action for various recommended treatments.
A new resident of Michigan in 2015, Dr Pinney formerly lived in Alexandria, VA and practiced at Fairfax and Arlington Mental Health Centers. At Georgetown University Medical Center and Walter Reed Army Medical Center he practiced and taught residents and fellows studying Child Psychiatry. He also had 8 months experience as a Consultant Child Psychiatrist in New Zealand near Wellington and Masterton. The move to the greater Flint area was to live near his extended family circle and to take up part-time farming at a new home on some acreage. A few years ago he took a 2 year sabaticle to explore the Caribbean on his sailboat.
