*Treats patients ages 15-65.

I look forward to our working together to resolve the dis-ease you have been experiencing. I embarked onto the road to becoming be a Doctor since the 4th grade when I discovered the model of a skeleton in the corner of the Science teachers’ room. I later discovered that the Science teacher had been a Medic in the Army. We lived in a town that produced the largest number of teachers for the state and all around me were teachers. I approach working with my patients as a teacher encouraging them to learn how their body works.

I continue to be excited about doing this work every day to help with the resolution of the symptoms my patients are experiencing. Luckily in Psychiatry as in other disciplines of Medicine, orderly collection of the information is vital to understanding the presenting problem.

In many cases, there may be a somatic cause undergirding a behavioral presentation. In some cases, Iron Deficiency may be one cause of Restless Legs Syndrome as well as a positive family history. So, the completion of lab tests, when suggested, are critical to identifying and managing both physical and behavioral illness. Treatment of the Iron Deficiency would then be important as well as the use of other agents.

So, even though you are presenting with complaints of Anxiety, Depression, or Mood Swings my job is to screen for any functional causes of those symptoms and address them.

Now you have some insight into why our forging a strong partnership is vital to helping you achieve the goal of having the best outcome.

I have worked in many areas of Psychiatry and utilize that knowledge base to help you on your journey to wellness.
