I always make it a point to provide very thorough education about diagnoses and treatment to each patient. The more patients know, the better likelihood there will be compliance with treatment and more positive outcomes as well as improved communications with medical professionals.


After completing residency TC was recruited to begin and chair a new department of psychology to begin offering services to what was at the time a highly underserved population.

He was also named the medical director of the Addiction Recovery Center at the hospital. Before the hospital was sold to a for-profit company, he had a department that offered individual, group, and marital therapy, the addictions program, and his own practice, which also included consultation and liaison work on the inpatient units.

TC also recruited child psychiatrists to the department and was a co-chair on the hospital's ethics committee.


TC received a Bachelor of Arts in English from Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1985. He earned his medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia in 1989, then began his psychiatric residency at Temple University Hospital and finished at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia in 1993.
