Dr. Sima Paul, MD
Dr. Paul grew up in suburban Ohio and earned a degree in chemistry from Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY. After a year of graduate studies in organic chemistry, she decided to attend medical school, spending two years at Ross University and then two more in New York City, completing her clinical rotations in Brooklyn and Queens, followed by a psychiatric residency at St. Luke’s Roosevelt affiliated with Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Both her parents are physicians (a pathologist and orthopedic surgeon), and her older sister is a psychiatrist who recommended she focus on child and adolescent psychiatry after seeing how well (the future) Dr. Paul connected with her children.
Dr. Paul believes Skypiatrist’s telemedicine model is a natural fit. “I have been practicing psychiatry for over 12 years and doing Tele-psychiatry for three. I enjoy it and believe patients just feel more comfortable talking from home.” Applying her expertise in ADHD, mood, and anxiety disorders, she will work with both younger patients and adults.
