Professional Statement

  • I am a Board Certified psychiatrist with over fifteen years of clinical experience since my graduation from residency. While I maintain a general practice in psychiatry, areas of expertise include psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, and work with patients suffering from medical illness; I have completed accredited fellowships in these areas at Cornell, Columbia, and Memorial Sloan Kettering.
  • My formal training in the above areas allow me to do the most thoughtful and comprehensive evaluations of patients, from emotional, physical, and neuropsychiatric perspectives. You can feel confident that I take my time and examine your circumstances and experiences, from which I can intelligently confer an appropriate diagnostic impression and treatment plan.
  • Lastly, my affiliation with both the Cornell and Columbia medical community affords me access to the best psychiatric subspecialists New York has to offer. If, in the course of your consultation, I feel another specialist would better address your diagnostic or treatment goals, I will facilitate a referral to one of my exceptional colleagues.
  • Nothing matters more to me than the health and well being of my patients. Whether I treat you myself, or get you to a more appropriate specialist, your concerns will be addressed with the utmost care and responsiveness.
  • With respect to insurance matters, please note that I am considered an out of network provider for all carriers. I accept payment for the consultation at the time of the visit, and will generate a document that you may submit to your insurance carrier. You will then be reimbursed by your insurance carrier based upon your out of network benefits. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly with any questions or concerns.
