Biography

Dr. Ben Medrano received his MD from University of Colorado School of Medicine with additional training in an Urban Medicine Track and Complementary Alternative Medicine. He is currently enrolled in the Integrative Psychiatry Institute’s fellowship for continuing medical education through the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

He completed his psychiatric residency training at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital in New York City and specializes in pharmacologic treatment of adult psychiatric disorders as well as multimodal psychotherapy.

His clinical practice is influenced by an ongoing interest in Integrative or Complementary Alternative psychiatry. With over 20 years of intensive training in the Buddhist community, he is well-versed in Buddhist psychology and numerous forms of meditation practices.

Dr. Medrano maintains a strong commitment to caring for all in need. This is exemplified by his ongoing work with the under-served at Metropolitan Hospital’s Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team where he spends the majority of his time doing home visits for high risk consumers throughout New York City.

He is a member of the New York Medical College faculty, teaching Community Psychiatry. He is also an adjunct professor at Mount Sinai Beth Israel where he teaches physician trainees on the utility of mindfulness meditation for mental health.

In addition to these he has cared for diverse caseloads throughout New York City at various community centers serving the full spectrum of ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender identity, and sexual orientation.

 

How I work with clients

Dr. Ben Medrano’s approach includes frequent comprehensive assessment of relationships, family dynamics, career, lifestyle, self-care tactics, and spiritual/philosophical beliefs.

He takes a collaborative approach towards tailoring an individualized, evidence-based care plan that includes lifestyle adjustment, therapy and medication when warranted.

As a compliment to therapy, he encourages and provides in-depth instruction on mindfulness techniques for coping and self actualization.
