I like to get to know my patients inside-out from a personal, social, biological, and psychological level. Not only does this foster an excellent therapeutic relationship, but results in better treatment. This skill was instrumental in publishing a New York Times cover story titled, "Diagnosing the Wrong Deficit." in 2013. I have thousands of hours of experience working with patients with depression, adult ADHD, addictions, and sleep disorders. Everyone I see gets a comprehensive evaluation, including bloodwork and sometimes pharmacogenomic testing, as well as personalized recommendations, whether they be for therapy, supplements, medications, other specialists, or lifestyle interventions.
