No patient I have been treating, or who was being treated by a Psychiatry Resident or Fellow I was supervising, has ever killed themselves or hurt anyone else.
No patient I treated has ever even talked about suing me for malpractice.
I have never been censured or rejected by any medical organization.

I have not been trained in child/adolescent psychiatry. I did work one-half time during my senior year at an exceptionally good adolescent residential facility, so I have more experience than most adult trained psychiatrists. I also was the Consultant for several years for an excellent home visiting service in which many adolescents were seen. So I will treat patients twelve years old and older.
