As the only physician in the United States who is board certified by both the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and the American Board of Neurological Surgery, Dr. Buchanan is uniquely trained and qualified to treat both the brain and the mind.
It is Dr. Buchanan's goal to understand the totality of the human person by bringing together his analysis of both the brain and the mind. This creates a formulation that is complete and fully integrated.
Once a 360 degree comprehensive neuropsychiatric assessment is complete, a treatment plan is designed.
