Narrative medicine is a practice, described by Dr. Rita Charon in 2001, in which your story, the one I listen to and for which I create a narrative, not only establishes a healing bond of humanity, held in the utmost confidence, but gives rise also to a diagnosis and to a treatment. You tell your story, I write it down and offer it back so you can in turn reflect and refine it, and once that shared story is told, I have found, healing begins.
Narrative medicine takes time, which is why I schedule a two-hour initial meeting whenever possible. The vast majority of my patients have never had this long with a doctor before, and the benefit is that it allows a truly accurate story to take shape in both our minds, followed by a precise diagnosis, treatment, and improvement.
A first, free, initial evaluation is usually performed over the phone. I tend to speak at length to ensure you are a good fit for my practice. I don't prescribe ketamine infusions, high-dose stimulants, chronic sedatives, and will not recommend hallucinogens, but if that is your focus, I can try to find you a provider. My office phone is +1 312-820-4663.

I prefer to meet, the first time, for two hours. I don't think anyone I have met needs less time to tell their full story. Only in the last half hour do I feel that giving a name, a diagnosis if you like, starts becoming helpful; but the idea is to know who you are as a person, before we decide what to change in the name of medicine.
