About

Most of the patients who have worked with me over the years have a variety of different mental health issues. These include depression, anxiety and substance dependence. However, in psychiatry, there are many other mental health matters which need to be diagnosed and carefully treated. I feel very capable and prepared given my years of experience to work with patients who have these conditions as well.
Psychiatry, unlike most other specialties in medicine, requires the physician to listen even more carefully. This is especially true given the lack of objective tests to determine the exact nature and diagnosis of the presenting problem. I consider myself to be very strong when it comes to listening to patients.
Probably the most important factor which I stress to patients is that I focus on the needs of each individually. Even though there may be guidelines and other standard ways to treat a psychiatric condition, I consider it extremely important to take into account the specifics for each individual patient.
