  • Is this information wrong?


  • I am a board certified psychiatrist who has been working in academia part-time for the past 15 years (since 2005). I also have a part-time private practice which I hope to continue. My specialty has been the psychiatric treatment of movement disorder complications. However, this work has also provided me with vast experience working with the chronically ill and medically complicated elderly population. I enjoy geriatric psychiatry and neuropsychiatry and hope to continue using these skills in an environment that values quality of patient care and provides support for counseling patients and teaching trainees and students. I also enjoy working as part of a medical or surgical team since this is where I feel I can contribute the most.
