I am a UCLA-trained general adult psychiatrist with experience in the pharmacological and psychotherapeutic treating all types of psychiatric illnesses. I have a special clinical interest and additional training in personality disorders. I am familiar with the detailed assessment of these conditions and their interplay with other psychiatric disorders, as well as contemporary psychotherapeutic treatment methods of these conditions. I have extensive experience conducting independent medical evaluations of injured workers in California. I am available to conduct file reviews and have experience in utilization review in the Worker's Compensation and commercial insurance environments. I have also served as an expert reviewer for the Medical Board of California on questions related to standards of care, and as a practice monitor for physicians on probationary status. I am currently licensed in California and Texas.
