Thank you for considering working with me. I know how difficult it can be to seek help, but by doing so you're taking a step closer to where you want to be.

I'm a board-certified psychiatrist who will do my best to help you overcome the obstacles in your way, recognize negative patterns in your life and behavior, and find healthy, productive responses to the challenges you face.

Medication is most effective when it's used in combination with therapy, and my patients have usually found it helpful to explore their emotional lives. If you're only interested in medication management, however, I'm happy to work with you. I look forward to our work together.

I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Combs since 2011 when he was Unit Chief of the unit that I joined as a psychologist at Kings County Hospital Center. He is not only an expert pharmacologist, but he has a wonderful ability to relate to his patients, understanding their individual difficulties, and helping them deal with them humanely and respectfully. He has extensive experience and expertise in public health care, which has given him a great sensitivity to issues of diversity, including, but not limited to, the issues faced by those in the LGBTQ+ or African American community. He is also now undertaking advanced Psychoanalytic training, and is on his way to becoming an extremely skilled psychotherapist and analyst. Simply put, he is one of the best psychiatrists you will have the opportunity of working with.
