Care Philosophy

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.Read more

Dr. Pinney says...

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.

Dr. Pinney's Care Philosophy

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. 

Dr. Pinney says...

I have not claimed a sub-sub speciality with a focus on evaluating and treating just certain diagnoses. Perhaps my many years of work within large Community Mental Health Clinics where necessity required an ability to meet whomever came through the front door has left me with an openness to address a full variety of issues. If there is a community resource that offers competent special care I am always open to make a referral.

Dr. Pinney says...

No medical proceedures are included in my practice. Vital signs and interviews followed by confidential therapy sessions with or without psychiatric medication is the basic format.
