About

Bio

My patients are dealing with problems related to mood, anxiety, sleep, sex, appetite, energy level, weight control. A big part of my practice is treatment of addiction. I know the standards of care well – I used to teach other doctors the skills to pass the board exams, - but I also know what can be offered beyond the common standards. In some cases, I use medications that are not commonly prescribed - MAOI, Xyrem, LDN, to name a few; in some cases, supplements and vitamins can replace medications or at least cab help decrease the doses of medications. In many cases, addressing thyroid problems, adrenal fatigue or using bio-identical hormones can solve the problems that antidepressants and sedatives cannot solve.
