You're a successful, accomplished, busy person encountering more stresses lately. Now you're feeling strained, anxious, distracted, angry or moody. While normally you push through your difficulties all by yourself, this time it's different. You realize you could actually benefit from some professional help but your personal pride and self-reliance make this a big step to take. You also wonder: "How could anyone possibly understand everything that's on my plate?" I'm an experienced psychiatrist from the so-called Golden Age of Psychiatry, where we learned to bridge two seemingly different approaches, the psychological and biological.

In my experience, I have found it extremely important to listen to a patient's complaints and gather as much information as I can to understand their symptoms, the stressors they are experiencing and their relationships at work and at home. All of this information must be taken into account during the diagnostic evaluation along with a detailed medical and psychiatric history. After a diagnosis is made, I explain what the treatment will be. I will provide information about whatever medication is prescribed and I will discuss medication options. I will also review and discuss any possible drug interactions.
