Psychiatrist, DO Verified
Katonah, NY 10536
I believe the mind is one of the most important, if not the most important, part of the human body. If the mind is not well, a person's ability to care for themselves and function in society in a healthy manner is compromised. I am trained to treat both children and adults. My specialization is treating individuals ages 5 through 30. I am particularly adept at treating anxiety, depression, ADHD, as well as other psychiatric illnesses.
