I am gentle, open-minded, and empathetic, and see the quality of the patient-doctor relationship as a critical part of effective treatment. I have a breadth of knowledge from over 40 years of clinical experience, and eclectic training in the state-of-the-art in pharmacology, various forms of psychotherapy, and both Eastern and Western complementary healing modalities.
