My philosophy is to approach treatment from a biopsychosocial perspective. I incorporate my patient's unique genetic makeup, unique medical issues and their day to day challenges into a personalized care plan.
I have a very diversified training. I initially trained in family practice and worked in that field for years. I developed special interest in patients with mental illness. I went into residency in Republic of Ireland and completed four years training in psychiatry. I was affiliated with Dublin University Psychiatry Rotational Training Program.
My training entailed rotating through five of the major teaching hospitals. I was admitted into the Royal College of Psychiatrist London (UK) after satisfying their academic and clinical demands.
I completed another four years residency program when I moved into the US. I excelled during my residency at Case Western Reserve University Metrohealth program. I am certified by American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
My training exposed me to care at various clinical settings. I worked at various inpatient units in Ireland. I worked in specialized units like eating disorder unit, intellectual disability units. I provided community psychiatry care in outpatient setting. I worked at a drug treatment center.
After my residency in the US, I worked at the state hospital in Ohio for three years. I was assigned to the acute unit which served as a referral center for most severely ill patients. I was involved in bedside teachings for medical students who rotated in the hospital. I maintained a rotation at one of the busiest emergency room in inner city Cleveland.
I managed patients there for over five years. I supervised residents who rotates through the emergency room. In North Carolina, I have worked with ACTT which is the highest level of care in the community. I currently provide inpatient care at Forsyth Medical Center Winston Salem and Cone Behavioral Healthcare Greensboro.
