To create the kind of practice I want for patients, I operate a full-service, "concierge" psychiatry practice, as opposed to an insurance-driven one. This allows me to focus on quality over quantity, and on personalized service and accessibility over volume. Most importantly, I have fewer patients than an insurance-driven practice, which means I have more time for you. We will have ample time during your visit to discuss your concerns. I am also much more accessible between visits for your phone calls and emails.
