I care about listening carefully to patients, to obtain the most accurate history possible. It is crucial to foster an open, trusting relationship over time. I am one of the few psychiatrists to combine in depth understanding of the person along with vast experience with medication: what it can and can't do. I also combine child & adolescent training with understanding of the role of families in a person's development.
