Project Description

Personal Statement:

I have been treating patients in the Philadelphia area for four decades.  I treat most psychiatric disorders and have extensive training and experience treating depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorders.  I work with patients age 18 and older, including geriatric patients.  I believe my compassion and sense of humor complement my expertise in diagnosis and treatment.

Training and Experience:

I earned my undergraduate and medical degrees at Penn State University and Jefferson Medical College.  I completed my residency training in psychiatry at Jefferson Hospital, and did a fellowship in Affective Disease Research (mood disorders) at the Philadelphia Veterans Administration Hospital and the University of Pennsylvania.  I have worked in most types of treatment settings (outpatient, academic, inpatient, residential, nursing homes) and have held management and teaching positions throughout my career.
