Head of psychiatry at Huntsville Hospital? This Dr is disconnected from even basic practice. I have been inpatient off and on for over two decades with him at the helm. The last time I left art group in tears and went to my bed. I had been tasked with a simple needlepoint bookmark and was profoundly disturbed by not being able to process the instructions. The doctor entered my room with 2 interns and demanded that I return to the group or leave. He could have taken the opportunity to provide me
