About

Bio

I am a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist in outpatient private practice in Greensboro, NC. I am originally from NY, and went to medical school at SUNY at Stony Brook from 1974 to 1978. I did an internship in Pediatrics from1978-79 and a Residency in Psychiatry from 1979-81, both at Montefiore Hospital and Medical Center in the Bronx, NY. I then did a Child Psychiatry Fellowship at St Luke's-Roosevelt Medical Center in Manhattan from1981-83. After Residency, I worked at Rockland Children's Psychiatric Center in Orangeburg,NY for a couple of years before moving to the Boston area. There I worked as an Attending Psychiatrist and then Medical Director of the Adult Inpatient Units at The Carney Hospital in Dorchester. I also worked as a Staff Psychiatrist at Boston Children's Hospital's School Function Clinic before moving to NC.
