I have expertise in treating bipolar disorder, ADHD, depression, treatment resistant depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, psychosis, neurocognitive disorders, substance use disorders, and OCD .
I have years of experience working as a family physician and a psychiatrist. I understand that there are many important factors in assessing a patient's mental health status and use this information to make a more complete assessment. Specifically, as a psychiatrist, I understand that each person needs to have patient focused care and what might work for one patient will not work for the next patient. I look at each patient as an individual and make sure that they are receiving the best care. I monitor my patients closely to see how they are responding to treatment and assist them in improving their overall well-being.
