Although originally from Upstate New York, I have lived in Alabama and Florida most of my adult life. We have lived on the Eastern Shore for 20 years, and love the lifestyle it affords. My wife is a teacher in the Baldwin County public schools, and our son is a Junior at Daphne High School. Being able to live here and work here is an absolute pleasure! In addition to my experience as a private practitioner, I have taught at Florida State University, Sante Fe Community College, the University of South Alabama College of Medicine, and the University of South Alabama College of Education. I was a Psychologist V for the Alabama Department of Mental health for 5 years, a contract mental health clinician for the Alabama Department of Corrections, and a consultant to 3 sleep disorders centers in Mobile. I've co-authored 3 books, and over a dozen refereed journal articles, and write fiction in my spare time. I have as a co-investigator on several experimental pharmaceutical studies and served as a physician educator for Upjohn-Searle Pharmaceuticals. I am also active as Committee Chair for Troop 177 of the Boy Scouts and play terrible golf with my son, who is 4th-year varsity golfer at Daphne High.

Dr. Mulkerne answered his phone my first call and worked me in very quickly. When depression or life strikes us, there usually is not time for a month wait for help. He was a great listener and suggested many things which helped me improve my depression and with life in general. Very knowledgeable of mental illness and the symptoms of it. Mental health is a very serious disease of which many of us suffer. Thank you, Dr. Mulkerne for all your help. Life is much better today. M Jones
Thank you for your kind words.

Dr. Mulkerne is very arrogant and unprofessional. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.
I am very sorry you feel this way, and apologize if I came across as arrogant or unprofessional. I strive be neither in my interaction with everyone I meet, in the office or elsewhere. I welcome the opportunity to discuss this with you, if you feel it would be helpful. You can call me or email me at your convenience.

Dr. Mulkerne is a rarity amongst his profession. His knowledge enables him to treat patients in a manner that is effective and thorough. I have been seeing him for several months now and not only am I experiencing relief from my debilitating depression, but I am also learning and utilizing coping techniques and methods from my sessions. I would highly recommend his services to anyone, but especially to individuals who feel they have been unable to find an effective psychologist.
