Dr. Jeffrey Satinover
38 years experience male
Jeffrey Satinover, M.D., Ph.D. Private Practice
With training in both psychoanalysis and scientific research, my practice is concentrated in psychopharmacology as an adjunct to psychotherapy (working with therapists, primary care physicians and specialists). I have special experience with the mood disorders, especially bipolar, in high-achieving individuals in the arts and sciences, and in finance. Patients have come to me from many walks of life, and I have learned from them how unique every individual is. There may be algorithms for medication, but not for people. I consult to industry and to business schools on the challenges unique to individuals in positions of great responsibility--for example, dealing with the stress associated with the "Illusion of Control". (An example of the latter may found at the London Harvard Business School Club website: http://www.hbsa.org.uk/article.html?aid=233). I enjoy teaching as much as possible, most recently Behavioral Finance at the Lorange School of Business outside Zurich, Switzerland, and at the Jung Institute, also in Zurich. My New York practice is open on Saturdays only. The TEDx video URL'd below gives a brief overview of two subjects: How bad we are at taking action in the face of disaster; and some cutting-edge concepts in medicine and disease. For about eight years I served as an Army (NG) Flight Surgeon. That gave me some very enjoyable experience with more general medicine--for a unique group of men and women!

Very helpful and insightful-if I didn't ask the question correctly he would simply ask me to rephrase it rather than ignoring it. That was greatly appreciated!

Dr. Satinover is an amazing doctor! #nationaldoctorsday2015 #virtualflower1
Thank you. I will continue to talk to my therapist and also college had been awesome because I have been around older people I connect with
I can't. I don't even have a relationship with my mom and she knows nothing about me. & I'm away at college. It's just difficult. But thanks
Thank you so much Dr.Satinover! As a teacher, I would like other children to be informed & be empowered that they could help another child.
