Bio

I am a Board Certified Psychiatrist in practice for 30 years since 1990. My specialty is Adult Psychiatry and I have a private practice as well as work in an out patient community mental health clinic. Additionally, I have served as an Expert witness in Probate Court Mental Health for 29 years. I work with Attention Deficit , Dementia, and Opiate Addiction, and of course Major Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, and Schizophrenia.

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.
