Whether you are dealing with a chronic psychiatric condition or seeking care for the first time it can be a daunting task to navigate today's mental health care system. I strongly believe that the most important thing to do when meeting with a patient for the first time is to listen carefully and empathically. Though medications are often an important part of a patient's treatment plan, I strive to use them judiciously and will take the time to explain my rationale for the specific medication I may recommend as part of your care.
