David Avery, MD, Seattle, WA

I love working at Psychiatric Medicine Associates.  I have the freedom to provide quality care for my patients.  I can schedule an appropriate amount of time for my patients based on their clinical need rather than a predetermined amount of time imposed by an administrator.   I have the freedom to informally consult with my colleagues who are experts in a variety of subspecialities in psychiatry.   In this way, our patients can benefit not only from my expertise but also the collective expertise of our group.   I am privileged to work with colleagues who share with me a desire to provide optimal care for our patients with concern and compassion.
