Paul J. Kachoris
Paul J. Kachoris, M.D. is triple board certified in pediatrics, child, adolescent and adult psychiatry in the “original” practice of psychiatry: treating the whole person with both psychotherapy for the psyche and with psychotropic medications for the brain as needed. Dr. Kachoris has been in continuous clinical psychiatric practice for forty years. He has held multiple clinical, educational, academic and administrative positions in both inpatient and outpatient psychiatric settings.
Presently he is devoting himself to his outpatient psychiatric practice and pursuing his many interests in poetry, the humanities, neuroscience, men’s studies and leading men’s retreats.
Drawing from his diverse interests and humanistic experiences, Paul gathered the myriad facets of his life and gave birth to Unmasked in poetic voice. Paul’s “eureka” moment!
Paul’s poetry has won several awards. Most recently, his poem Papa’s Old, Black, Leather Suitcase was the winner of the 3rd Honorable Mention, Experimental Poem, Poet & Patrons 51st Annual, at the Chicagoland Poetry Contest in 2007.
