Professional Statement

I attended Boston University School of Medicine and trained at Yale University. This led to practice at Bellevue and Woodhull Hospitals, and private practice in Bushwick. My specialties are depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, substance abuse, and anxiety disorders in adults, but I can consult on whatever is troubling you. Currently my practice is mainly medication management. I concede that while medications are helpful, they are not necessarily the key to the solution. I caution against placing too much stock in what they can do. I have seen many people search endlessly for the right and perfect medication when there may be no such thing. And I have found that stopping medications (with care) can be as useful as starting them. In my experience, controlled substances are good at throwing a blanket over a problem but fail to address it head on. Medications like Xanax and Klonopin have some place in the treatment of mood, psychotic, and anxiety disorders, but over time can themselves become a problem. Similarly, I am wary of using stimulants to treat attention disorders.

Excellent psychiatrist - highly recommended! Dr. Roman made it clear that he is invested in my health as a new patient by asking thorough intake questions, creating a clear follow-up/monitoring plan, and being transparent about how he reached his recommendations. He's also very ethical, selecting the least dangerous and non-addictive treatment options. Given his specialty, expect lots of questions for the intake, and bluntness if your past providers or your own health choices were not following best practices for treatment.

Dr. Roman is the best psychiatrist I've ever seen and I've seen probably 5 or 6 in NYC. He takes the time to fully understand what you're dealing with and treats it according to what he hears. Every time I see him, he does a full hour-long therapy session to get to the root of the issue. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a knowledgeable and caring psych, it can be very difficult to find.

The inquisitorial nature of his background questions are borderline hostile. Seems competent enough, didn't do anything wrong. But, not the person I would voluntarily choose to treat me on a consistent basis.
