Additional Information

I am a board-certified psychiatrist with 33 years experience working in psychiatric hospitals, chemical dependency treatment facilities, nursing homes, community mental health centers, and office-based private practice of adolescents and adults with a wide range of psychiatric illnesses and addiction issues. I am currently in active practice. I have a unique ability to perform completely private evaluations in security-sensitive circumstances. I am routinely contacted directly to arrange and coordinate independent evaluations, meet with clients without involving others, and can perform evaluations in anonymous locations when necessary. Reports are completed offline without involving any third party in the process (without answering services, recording devices, third party testing, EMR, secretarial/support staff or coordinators, transcriptionists, etc.) ensuring complete privacy throughout the IME process.
