35 YEARS
EXPERIENCE

Dr. Permesly is Board Certified by American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in Child, Adolescent, and Adult Psychiatry. He has limited his practice to the out-patient setting where he provides a thorough assessment and develops a complete treatment plan. He is concerned not only about the individual but also the patient's family.

Dr. Permesly's extensive training and understanding of the medical model allows him to balance his impressive clinical skills with understanding of providing medication to augment other forms of treatment particularly in areas of severe mental illness and addictive disorders. An understanding of the biochemistry of the brain and the benefits of both psychotherapy and medication management have been prevalent in his continued studies and practice. It is the balance between these modalities that provides optimum growth.
