Daniel J. Abrams, M.D. Medical Psychiatry of Colorado


  • I am a board certified psychiatrist who completed my training in 2009 and have a clinical appointment in Psychiatry and Neurosurgery at the University of Colorado. Prior to my psychiatry practice, I was a board certified Neurosurgeon in private practice when I developed a visual problem which stopped my surgical practice. In my psychiatry practice, I am interested in the overlap of psychiatric and medical diagnosis and I incorporate the maturation of character and identity development in the healing process. I work with patients to achieve their goals and strive to use a combination of medications and therapy to prioritize the patients objectives, and values.
