Ruben Portnoy, MD, Psychiatrist in New York
I got my medical training in Argentina, my home country. After graduating in 1995, I moved to the U.S. to complete my Residency at Einstein Medical Center and my Fellowship at Thomas Jefferson Medical College, both in Philadelphia. For the past seven years, I've worked as a full-time attending psychiatrist at the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry of Mount Sinai Beth Israel, where I also supervised medical students as Assistant Professor. I'm now an analytic candidate at NYU's Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis.
As a psychiatrist I'm interested in thorough evaluations that include a Bio-Psycho-Social understanding of each patient. As a psychopharmacologist, I'm open to not medicating. As a therapist, I believe in the "talking cure," and helping patients explore and understand their conscious and unconscious processes.
Among my specialties are the treatment of ADHD, anxiety and depression. I'm fully bilingual, and can conduct sessions in both English and Spanish.
