Somerville, MA 02144
While I am not taking patients at the moment, I do keep a waiting list. I practice a personal kind of psychiatry that is disappearing in the era of highly managed psychiatric care and the fifteen minute medication visit. Even managing medication for a patient seeing another therapist, my follow-up visits are all 25-45 minutes, and I remain interested in the big picture of each patient as an individual human being who I am helping to get better and move ahead in his or her life. I have to remain in touch with what is going on in the lives of my patients, rather than merely tallying up symptoms and writing prescriptions.
