Special Services

My patients have my cell phone. I prefer texting for its most rapid response. Return of messages is usually with 24 hours.

I am also available by e-mail.

I do tele-psychiatry sessions via SKYPE.


I am dedicated to providing my patients with the best treatment options available.  I have chosen to be an out of network doctor and do not accept insurance.  Having a cash-based practice gives me the flexibility and freedom to tailor a treatment plan that best serves each individual patient.
