Dr. Henry McCurtis, MD

Addiction Specialist, Psychiatrist

Professional statement

I am a psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, with a specialty in addiction psychiatry with an integrative psychiatry practice based on a diagnostic assessment and treatment guided by biological, psychological, social, and behavioral paradigms. I have a developmental orientation toward understanding human behavior. I have a special interest in attachment styles and their implications in interpersonal conflict in families and couples. I have a keen interest in the phase of life problems resulting in the major transitions in development such as the passage from adolescents to young adulthood, marriage, divorce, mid life adjustments, retirement, and grief and bereavement. I have a specialty in psychoanalysis that informs my approach to elucidate the experiences of the past that influence the perspective in the here and now that motivates one to think, feel, and act in predictable patterns that influence agency, identity, empathy, and intimacy. I have a cross cultural sensitivity developed in the crucible of the rural South during the sunset of Jim Crow and the dawn of the Civil Rights area and refined in the academic environments of a Traditionally Black College during the most intense period of the social change.

I scheduled my very first appointment and was later informed that I needed to reschedule. Fine. I did. I arrived at the new date and at 4:55 pm for my 5 pm appointment. I waited for 15 minutes, and then knockedon the doctor’s door. He told me to wait. I waited for another 30 minutes. When I finally saw the doctor, he did apologize. I asked him if he frequently runs late, and the doctor said, “It happens.” I told him that this relationship was not going to work for me. I left and will never return.

I must say I am a self proclaimed know it all, due to the hours I spend educating myself on different behaviors and disorders of the mind and also because I am in the medical field myself. However, Dr. McCurtis isvery knowledgeable in his area of expertise. He was able to read me and my situation very accurately. He was very professional and took his time to get a thorough background information. He is very detailed and clarifies information that you tell him if it doesnt seem right. Overall, I was impressed by the first visit. I immediately referred him to someone I know that needs similar help.
