We are excited to announce that Seth Mandel, MD, MBA has joined the Lukin Center. Dr. Mandel received his Bachelor of Arts and Doctor of Medicine degrees from the University of Pennsylvania. He completed his Residency in Psychiatry at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan. He has been board certified in psychiatry since 2001 and is a Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. Dr. Mandel received his MBA from Hofstra University in 2014 with a concentration in Health Services Management. He was a member of the Hofstra Business Consulting Group and was inducted into the Beta Gamma Sigma international business honor society.
Dr. Mandel has more than 20 years of clinical experience working with clients spanning the entire spectrum of mental illness and substance use. He has a strong interest in mood, anxiety, and personality disorders, and has expertise working with clients diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. Dr. Mandel received a Borderline Personality Disorder Research Foundation Young Investigator Award and has also lectured on the pharmacologic management of this condition, including a presentation at the NIMH International Think Tank for the More Effective Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder.
Dr. Mandel has collaborated extensively with and provided direct supervision to social workers, psychologists, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners, as well as resident and attending physicians. He has held numerous clinical and academic appointments, most recently serving as Chairperson of Psychiatry at Huntington Hospital in Huntington, New York, and Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine.
Dr. Mandel previously served on the Speakers Bureau of GlaxoSmithKline and has consulted for Janssen Pharmaceuticals. He authored a section on the pharmacology of social anxiety in the book Work Makes Me Nervous, and was also interviewed for a one-hour segment in the Andrew Kukes Foundation for Social Anxiety’s production entitled, Social Anxiety: The Untold Story, a 10-hour instructional video about the diagnosis and treatment of social anxiety for mental health professionals.
Recently, Dr. Mandel left academic medicine to focus on what he loves most, work directly with patients. He cofounded and helped grow MMHW Psychiatry, a private psychiatry practice in midtown Manhattan. While there, he shifted his treatment paradigm away from the traditional medical model of mental health treatment. He provides a holistic model of care that considers the entire person -- body, mind, and spirit. Rather than viewing mental health services solely as the treatment of mental illness, he emphasizes a comprehensive approach to prevention, and physical, as well as mental well-being.
Dr. Mandel continually seeks ways in which to streamline complex pharmaceutical regimens. He recently completed a fellowship in integrative and functional psychiatry. This discipline uses laboratory analysis to evaluate and treat underlying contributing issues which may include nutritional deficiencies, food allergies, infections, toxicities, and genetic disorders. Dr. Mandel enjoys working very closely with medical providers, as well as psychotherapists and practitioners of other healing modalities such as nutrition, yoga, and acupuncture. Through this eclectic approach, he can achieve the best possible outcome for all whom he is privileged to serve.
A lifelong New Yorker, Dr. Mandel relocated to New Jersey In November 2019. He had been eagerly looking to practice in his new home state and is extremely excited to now be collaborating with the clinicians at Lukin Center for Psychotherapy. He hopes to utilize his many years’ experience and diverse skillset to help all patients attending the Lukin Center achieve optimal mental health and wellness. Dr. Mandel lives in Passaic County with his wife and 2 daughters. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, barbecuing, and maintaining his small home farm.
