Zamir Nestelbaum, MD, MPH is a board certified psychiatrist specializing in the psychopharmacology of mood and anxiety disorders, crisis stabilization, trauma, psychoses, eating disorders, ADHD and many other mental health conditions.

“I’ve been practicing psychiatry for over 30 years in a variety of urban and rural settings, working with people of diverse backgrounds and interests. I’ve learned a great deal from each of them and continue to draw upon their rich experience. I work with people in a respectful collegial manner in a collaborative effort to achieve the best results.”

I provide my patients with expert and proven treatments; work with like minded colleagues who provide complementary psychotherapy and medical care; normalize the experience for patients seeking treatment and reduce any associated stigma; teach and mentor students and junior colleagues.
