Additional Information

My forensic work has included guardianships; involuntary commitments; IME’s for insurance companies, lawyers, local law enforcement personnel, and correctional facility staff; and I have testified several times. Most of my career has involved direct patient care- inpatient, outpatient, hospital consultation and liaison, ECT, long term care facilities, correctional (state prison), and crisis service responsibilities. Administrative work consisted of my being chairman of the psychiatry department for 10 years in a general hospital and I served as medical director of psychiatric units in four hospitals. In addition, I have taught psychiatry and primary care residents as well as being the collaborative psychiatrist for advanced practice nurses.
