Jeffrey H. Green, M.D. is a psychiatrist skilled both in the use of psychotherapy and in the use of psychotropic medications. Dr. Green has been treating adults and adolescents in the Princeton community since 1986. Knowing the potential benefits of the various treatment modalities as well as being realistic about treatment limitations, Dr. Green has been able to render treatment that is both rational and compassionate to his patients for two decades.
