  Because I do outpatient evaluation and therapy, I cannot promise that I will be available at all times. I usually do not take phone calls when I am with a patient. You can always leave a message on my answering machine, and I will return your call as soon as I can. Generally, I will return messages daily except on weekends and holidays.

  You can leave a message for me at 310-517-7977 press 1 for regular messages and press 2 for urgent messages and emergencies outside of my regular office hours.

  In case of true psychiatric emergency, please call 911, or contact Harbor-UCLA Psychiatric Emergency room at 310-222-3144, or go to the nearest emergency room.

  My hours for regular phone calls from 8 A.M. to 8 P.M. Monday through Thursday, and 8 A.M. to 4 P.M. on Fridays. Calls outside these hours are treated as emergencies and charged accordingly. If you leave me a regular message on Friday after 4:00 PM, it will be returned on Monday.

As I mentioned earlier in this website, I find that telephone therapy does not work as well as face-to-face therapy, and so I discourage it. I will generally suggest our meeting if you call with a problem that is not critical.
