More
Dr. William Wirshing is a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the Keck USC School of Medicine and Medical Director of Exodus Recovery, Inc in Los Angeles, where he provides psychiatric and chemical dependency care. His 40-year career has focused on the treatment of persons with schizophrenia and in particular the toxic consequences of putative antipsychotic compounds. Dr. Wirshing and his co-investigators at UCLA and the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center, pioneered the early studies leading to the discovery of metabolic side effects that became a veritable hallmark of the newer class of agents. His findings led to the development of the American Psychiatric Association and American Diabetes Association consensus guideline to appropriately monitor patients on atypical antipsychotic agents.
