For 30 years Robert McMullen, MD has had a full time private practice in general psychiatry on the West Side of New York City. Since 1988, he has limited his practice to evaluations and psychopharmacological treatment. That is, in 1988 he ceased to do any formal psychotherapy.
Dr. McMullen treats patients with a diverse range of mental illness. He specializes in the treatment of depression, various anxiety disorders and the bipolar disorders. Many patients have “treatment resistant” bipolar depression.
Some people ask: “Does Dr. McMullen ever not recommend medication?” Good question. The answer is yes, sometimes - but rarely. Most patients who are referred have been pre-screened. It was already decided by someone [even a relative] that he or she had a disorder that required some medication. The referring person is usually correct.
