I graduated from medical school in Texas. I am board certified in ophthalmology and psychiatry. I was an eye surgeon for twenty years. I had to have emergency heart surgery. I was in surgery for seven hours. After long recovery I was left with hand tremor. As a result I could not do surgery, and I had to retire. After six months I was going crazy with boredom. I enrolled in a local university and took psychology courses for fun. I liked the psychology courses, and the department convinced me to enter their master program.

I am the only physician fully trained and Board Certified in both Psychiatry and Neurosurgery. I think that it is important for a physician to understand that each human person is unique and the result of a melding of Brain, Mind, and Spirit. I see patients that have primary Psychiatric disease and those with neurological disease manifesting psychiatric symptoms. Patients that have a neurological disease with psychiatric symptoms need to be treated with full understanding of what brain areas will and will NOT respond to various medications. My practice employs both medication management and Neurologically informed psychotherapy.
