COVID 19 (Corona Virus) Update

As an Essential Service (healthcare) we continue to remain open during the COVID 19 situation.

If you do not have COVID 19 symptoms you have the option of coming to see your therapist or provider in person.

If you have symptoms, have been placed on quarantine, or prefer not to come into the office, you can still have your appointment through video (telehealth) on your computer, phone, or tablet.  Most insurances will also allow you to have your appointment by phone.  Please call our office at (518) 825-1555 if you have any questions.

Our Approach

Our Story

In 2017 Dino Santoro MD decided to start North Country Behavioral Medicine after leaving his position at CVPH Medical Center.  At first our group consisted of Dr. Santoro, Jennifer Kanaly NP and Jennifer Brennan NP.  We were soon joined by Dr. Archil Chechelashvili.  Since then we have grown by leaps and bounds.  Today our team consists of two psychiatrists, two psychiatric nurse practitioners, two physician assistants, four therapists, two nurses, a full time TMS service and five support staff.  Our physical footprint has quadrupled.  We are very proud of our growth and ability to serve our North Country Community.

Our Approach

North Country Behavioral Medicine provides psychiatric services to patients of all ages. We utilize multiple treatment modalities including specific psychotherapies, medication management and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). Specific psychotherapies include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psycho-dynamic Psychotherapy, and Eclectic Psychotherapies.  We also offer Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) for patients suffering from depression that has failed to respond to medications.

Each of our providers has specific skill sets and areas of interest.  We do our best to ensure you are connected with the most appropriate provider for your particular set of challenges.
