Dr. Pistone has been practicing psychiatry for over 20 years. He has worked as a Diplomat for the Argentine Boards of Internal Medicine and Critical Care Medicine and for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. His mode of treatment is based on the Hippocratic philosophy of medicine where the main focus is on the disease rather than the symptoms. He uses medications only when it is absolutely necessary since if the actual disease is cured, then the associated symptoms will also go away.

Dr. Pistone’s mentors are: Nassir Ghaemi, MD, Hagop Akiskal, MD, C. Thomas Gualtieri, MD, Antonio Puente, Ph D., and Ronald W. Pies, MD
