Dr. Schwartz is a board-certified Staff Psychiatrist as Talkiatry. He completed his residency at Bergen New Bridge Medical Center in Paramus, New Jersey. Where he excelled in his leadership and knowledge, becoming the Chief Resident in just his third year of residency at the busiest outpatient behavioral health clinic in New Jersey. Upon completion of his third year of residency he went on to become Chief Academic Resident of his program, which allowed him to bestow his knowledge of psychiatry on younger psychiatrists in training.
After completing his residency in General Psychiatry, he went on to complete a fellowship in the prestigious Mount Sinai Health System in New York City, based primarily out of the Beth Israel location. During this fellowship he studied Consultation-liaison psychiatry, also known as psychosomatic medicine. It is an exciting subspecialty of psychiatry that focuses on the care of patients with comorbid psychiatric and general medical conditions. Consultation-liaison psychiatry deals with the understanding and advancement of medical science, education, and the provision of healthcare for medically ill and complex patients.
Using his training, Dr. Schwartz can focus on using his extensive medication knowledge to help treat an array of psychiatric disorders. Despite medication management he also works on a holistic approach to psychiatry including working with the patient to get the proper therapy services when clinically indicated.
During the initial interview a thorough assessment is done including any medical and psychiatric history, as well as medications you may be currently taking and supplements before any medication is dispensed.
Using his knowledge in psychiatry and consult-liaison psychiatry, Dr, Schwartz’s interests include depression, anxiety, ADHD, obsessive compulsive and related disorders, transgender patients on
hormone therapies and post-surgical transition. He also has an extensive interest in medical illnesses with a psychiatric component such as cancer patients, transplant, HIV and many others alike.
