I am no longer in the Bay Area.
Board Certified Psychiatrist
I am a traditionally trained, board certified psychiatrist with a broad knowledge of psychiatric medications. My psychiatric practice has always been patient-oriented, with an emphasis on working together in a rational manner to obtain wellness. I practice psychiatry with integrity and compassion, which includes a philosophy of conservative management of the numbers, types and dosages of medications, in an effort to promote the healthiest regimen possible.
Psychiatry is an evolving process, which involves learning patient reactions to medications, and adjusting the regimen accordingly. It requires considerable time and thought, in addition to a constant review of initial diagnostic impressions. My goal is always customization, which is a balance of optimization of therapeutic effects with minimization of side effects. Central to my treatment philosophy is to provide patients with knowledge about their illness and the reasons for my choice of medications. Everything is explained as clearly as possible so patients have a good understanding and also full involvement in the treatment process.
