SUMMARY:  I am a psychiatrist with 33 years of clinical experience in many diverse settings. I am currently specializing in addiction psychiatry as well as adult general psychiatry. Writing has always been an interest, and I have written for local newspapers. I have met my objectives as a clinician, and I’m now expanding my writing career. My primary goal is to make cutting edge medical/psychiatric information available to the general public.
