To ensure the accuracy of our patient satisfaction scores, we require that providers who see patients receive a minimum number of completed patient-submitted surveys before their reviews are listed on their profiles. Star ratings on this site are collected on a rolling basis from the previous 12 months.
Additionally, some of the physicians listed on our site do not see patients directly, and therefore, do not receive evaluation and ratings from patients.

Treatment Philosophy

As a psychiatrist specializing in those with medical illness, I have had the privilege of working with many patients throughout the years who have taught me how important we are as inter-related human beings. Receiving a diagnosis of cancer or other illness, going through treatment, and survivorship often pose not only special challenges in our lives, but also may change how we see ourselves within our own lives, both physically and emotionally. I believe in addressing each person holistically, taking into account that which is most meaningful to each individual, and the very aspects of our lives that make us feel most human.

I incorporate a variety of evidence-based treatments which may include talk therapies, relaxation techniques, or medication management to help address symptoms, while at the same time addressing underlying individual preferences and goals. I furthermore take into account the inter-relationship of how medical factors affect emotional wellbeing, and how our emotional state also impacts us physically. I am deeply interested not just in which treatments are most effective, but also which factors may be involved in helping us to feel most whole.
