Since becoming a primary care physician over 20 years ago, I made the conscious choice to cement my career treating black and minority patients, primarily in underserved and indigent communities.

And while the reports of the overmedication of America might be true, when it comes to mental health issues, it is my experience that patients in black communities are under-medicated.
