About

Bio

I am a Johns Hopkins trained, Board Certified Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist. I am also Board Certified in General/Adult Psychiatry as well as Addictionology. I have been in practice for over 20 years and have treated over 18,000 children. I am a Certified Substance Abuse Professional for the Department of Transportation and a Medical Review Officer. I have written a book on behavior problems available on Kindle called: PARENTING THE KIDS According to a Child Psychiatrist. I have also produced a DVD on behavior problems available on Amazon called: The 20 Minute Behavioral Miracle. The DVD won the Adding Wisdom Award from the non-profit group Parent to Parent Organization for The Best New Product for Children in 2005. I currently own and operate The Detox Clinic of Hattiesburg where I work to try and help folks with Drug and Alcohol Addictions. I am one of about 90 National Mentors for the Physicians Clinical Support System to help teach other Doctors about the safe and effective practice of Outpatient Based Opiate Therapy for Opiate Dependency using buprenorphine, which is the medication in Suboxone and Subutex.
