We Are Weill Cornell Medicine: Dr. Jonathan Avery

Dr. Jonathan Avery knows the power of storytelling. As a psychiatrist specializing in addiction medicine, he empowers his patients to share their recollections of recovery through online testimonials.

“The amazing thing about Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is that here we do treat every individual like an individual,” said Dr. Avery, director of addiction psychiatry and an assistant attending psychiatrist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and an assistant professor of clinical psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medicine. “I really feel like people are doing the best they can, and they deserve our empathy and hope.”
