About

Bio

After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, I completed a Master’s degree in Special Education from Teacher’s College, Columbia University. I then went to medical school at the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center College of Medicine followed by my psychiatry residency there also. Post-residency I completed a two year fellowship in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and a one year fellowship in psychopharmacological research (both fellowships) at Mount Sinai Medical Center, NYC. I am board-certified in both Adult and Child Psychiatry. I love being a psychiatrist and being able to make to make a difference in people’s lives. I practice the biopsychosocial model of psychiatry.

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.
