New clients always welcome. Evening appointments available.
Serving the greater San Jose/Silicon Valley Area with offices in Los Altos, San Jose, and Morgan Hill, California.
I will ask you questions to develop a thorough understanding of the problem that brought you to treatment. Based on these findings I will suggest a personalized treatment plan and discuss it with you.
My practice is limited to psychopharmacological treatment for adults only. Initially I do a complete psychiatric interview for each patient that includes a history of the present illness, the past psychiatric history, and a complete family and developmental history.
If indicated I will prescribe the appropriate medication(s). Medications are essential for many people to rebalance their neurochemistry which can result in a significant decrease in the symptoms of an illness, thereby allowing them to have a richer quality of life.
I monitor each patient for efficacy of and the appropriate dosing of each medication and I will make any necessary changes.
If the patient has a psychotherapist then I contact him/her after each office visit.
I monitor the effect of any co-existing medical condition on the psychiatric disorder and vice versa.
I consult with other physicians when indicated and I monitor each patient for the continued need for medication on an ongoing basis.
I try to make each patient feel comfortable and not judged. I do not pressure patients to talk about anything about which they do not wish to talk about.
