Dr. Danielle Hairston
I am a first-generation doctor, the only physician in my family. I chose the psychiatry field because psychiatry was the rotation that I woke up looking forward to going to in med school. I was hesitant because of the stigma about psychiatry in medicine and mental health in my community. But ultimately, I had to make the choice that was right for me and the community that I care about serving. Psychiatry gives me the opportunity to address the total needs of patients: physical, mental, social, and advocacy. And, there is never a dull day in psychiatry! Something new is always going on.
