Throughout my career as a Psychiatrist, I have been an ardent supporter of collaborative, integrated medical and behavioral healthcare, having witnessed first-hand the impact of behavioral health, both positively and negatively, on total health. The opportunity to champion this evidence-based practice through Landmark’s model is not only personally fulfilling and exciting, but will also result in an improved quality of life for the patients we serve.
