Craig Jaffe, MD

Personal Statement

I am a senior psychiatrist at the Harborview Psychiatric Emergency Services.  Caring for patients in a high-acuity setting is my specialty.  I find this highly rewarding and appreciate that that even small interventions can yield significant steps forward in someone’s recovery.
