About

Bio

I am a Board certified Psychiatrist in practice in Reading, Pa. I trained at Norwich hospital and University of Connecticut health center in Farmington, Ct. I am the medical director for a busy south-central Pa practice and actively involved in running a Transcranial magnetic stimulation center.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Referral: Ask your family doctor or call your insurance provider. If you do not have insurance, find out which agency provides mental health services for the county where you live and show up for an intake and explain your symptoms and situation.

Evaluation: A psychiatric evaluation consists of detailed history including medical, psychiatric history, duration and nature of symptoms and after ruling out other causes such as medical conditions or substance use related symptoms, a diagnosis can be made if symptoms are present.
