Personal Statement

​I am interested in general psychiatry as well as consultation-liasion psychiatry, and pscyho-oncology.  I see patients in hospital and clinic settings, to address a broad range of illness including mood disorders, anxiety disorders, psychotic disorders, and coping and adjustment to medical problems including cancer.  I also enjoy and am involved in teaching and educating medical students and residents at various stages of training.
