About me

Philosophy of care

"I have developed a keen awareness of how stress can sometimes lead to significant mental and emotional suffering. When such suffering will not go away and causes an inability to function on a day-to-day basis, this insight enables me to help my patients relieve the burdens of mental illness and to restore the natural abilities that each person brings to his/her life. My subspecialty certification in psychosomatic medicine allows me to help those who are burdened by both a mental illness and other medical conditions.”

They sometimes say they will get back to you in 1-2 business days, but when I had a "pressing" issue, they got back to me very quickly. It seems to be dependent on how urgent the problem is.

My doctor showed genuine compassion about my mental health. He worked with my insurance company to get the best care for me. He gave me hope that I will get better.
