Narrative of Services:

I offer both one-time expert evaluations, including second opinions, and ongoing outpatient treatment at the Weill Cornell Psychiatry Specialty Center in New York City. A large proportion of the people I see have BDD and other obsessive-compulsive and related disorders as well as co-occurring depression and anxiety. I also evaluate and treat a broad range of other psychiatric conditions. Over more than 25 years I have evaluated and/or treated thousands of people with BDD and thousands of people with other psychiatric conditions.

I specialize in body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), olfactory reference syndrome (ORS), OCD, other obsessive-compulsive and related disorders, and anxiety disorders. For more than 25 years, I have been providing expert evaluation and treatment for people with these and other conditions as well as conducting research studies, primarily on BDD. I am also a general psychiatrist, treating a broad array of co-occurring conditions, such as depression. I have a holistic approach, which includes medication and/or therapy, including cognitive-behavioral therapy
