Fond du Lac Psychiatry
I have significant issues with the way that psychiatry has become, where patients are rushed through 7-minute med checks and hardly have time to state their most pressing symptoms. I see at most two patients per hour-- without exception. New patients are seen for at least 60 minutes. I have found that most patients appreciate being 'understood' by their psychiatrist, and that having a supportive relationship alone results in a number of benefits. I want my patients to know that we have a relationship that will last for years, and that I will be there for the times when help is needed. I treat patients of all ages and psychiatric conditions. I use medication, psychotherapy, or both, depending on the patient's needs and interests and after a discussion about the different options between myself and the patient. My ideal patient is a person who is seeking more than a rush from one medication to the next, who wants to understand why he/she is feeling the need for help, and who wants to be part of the treatment plan.

Honors and Awards
I do considerably better with academic subjects and scientific understanding than I do with social affairs and friendships-- something I've come to understand and accept over the years, and that I'm neither proud nor ashamed of. I attended grad and medical school as part of the highly-competitive Medical Scientist Training Program. I received the awards for top performance in Anatomy and in Physiology in Medical school; at graduation I was elected by my class to receive the award 'for promise as an outstanding medical educator'. I was (and still am) am member of Alpha Omega Alpha, the medical honor society. Some of the awards are listed on my CV linked above. I am particularly proud of the National teaching award that I received this year (2011) from the American Psychiatry Association, after being nominated by the Medical College of Wisconsin. I was chosen from a group of psychiatrists nominated by other medical schools from across the country, and I was humbled, and grateful, to receive the award.
