Dr. Michael Ketteringham, M.D.
Dr. Ketteringham believes that the stigma around mental health and its treatment can make initiation of psychiatric treatment intimidating. He pays particular attention to this barrier to care by providing a professional, nonjudgmental, and confidential space for consultation and treatment. He practices a patient-centered approach, guiding patients to develop and reach their goals through therapy and medication when indicated. He has experience treating individuals, couples, and families.
Dr. Ketteringham attended medical school at Columbia University where he also obtained a Masters of Public Health. Following, he trained as a resident in general medicine at Columbia University and as a resident in psychiatry at New York University. He also completed specialty training in addiction psychiatry at New York University and in the evaluation and treatment of sexual disorders through NYU’s Program in Human Sexuality.
In addition to private practice, Dr. Ketteringham has worked as a Medical Director of a Consultation Psychiatry Service at Northwell Health where he managed a team consisting of physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Consultation psychiatry exists at the interface of psychiatry and the disciplines of internal medicine, neurology, and surgery. That experience helped foster Dr. Ketteringham’s multidisciplinary approach to health and illness. He continues to teach and supervise psychiatry residents and medical students through his appointments at multiple academic centers.
