A Top Doctor from Paradigm San Francisco


DR. BARSHACK is a graduate of Haverford College and the University of Maryland Medical School. He completed his residency in Psychiatry at St. Mary’s Hospital in San Francisco. Dr. Barshack has been working with teens and their families for more than thirty years including both inpatient and outpatient psychopharmacology. He finds that many of the adolescents who come to Paradigm San Francisco are over-medicated rather than undereducated. He is devoted to responsible titration when appropriate and ensuring that young people are treated as a whole, rather than simply treating their symptoms. He shares Paradigm’s philosophy that medication should be a last resort rather than a quick and easy fix.


In addition, Dr. Barshack is an avid SF Giants and Forty Niners fan and enjoys cross-country bicycle trips in his free time.


At Paradigm San Francisco, we’re committed to working with teens and their families to accurately and precisely identify and treat an array of challenges, including mental health, behavioral health, and substance abuse issues.
