Dr. James Chandler Private Practice office
is closing December 20, 2024!

Certified Specialist - Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

Update on changes to Dr. Jim Chandler’s medical practice

​In November of 2023, I decided that I would close my private practice office in December 2024. At this point, I am going to make some more changes.

Here are the changes I will make as of
July 1, 2024                 

Child psychiatry-
New outpatients- as of July 1, I will mostly see youth as a one-time consultation. They will need a primary care provider or pediatrician.

Current outpatients- I will be discharging my current patients to primary care providers, pediatricians, and to other psychiatrists who can see youth, depending on the level of care required.  

Emergency and inpatients on the maternal child unit- I will continue to cover this as previously, depending on my availability.

Adult Psychiatry-
I do not plan on making any changes in this part of my practice. This consists of on-call psychiatry, occasional complex med-psych or neuropsychiatric patients on the psychiatric ward, ECT lead, and medical psychiatry and neuropsychiatric consults to all hospital wards. At present, consultations to the medical-surgical wards are the most significant portion of my adult psychiatry time.

Teaching- I will continue to be the psychiatry lead for the Dalhousie Family Practice Residency along with taking medical students.
