I am a psychiatrist with a private practice in midtown manhattan. My areas of interest are Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD) and Substance Use Disorders (SUD). In 2013, I Founded Compass Medical Services in efforts to provided integrated and comprehensive care to patients who have complicated psychiatric conditions and have not been helped in the past by traditional psychiatric treatment. A group of mental health professionals that work together to provide the best care possible.
Sometimes medicine can be an art as well as a science, especially in psychiatry. Each patient's depression, anxiety, and / or mood disorder is different, many will be helped by taking an antidepressant given by their internist. However, many will go on to try many medications with varying degrees of success. These are the patients that my group and I tend to help most.
