Dr. Binus believes in whole-person care. His goal is to understand and address the emotional, physical, and spiritual factors that influence each patient’s well being.
Dr. Binus serves as clinical director of Beautiful Minds Medical. He provides outpatient psychiatry and oversees the Intensive Outpatient Program. He’s also on the medical staff at Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital, and a clinical instructor for Loma Linda University.
Dr. Binus completed his medical training and psychiatry residency at Loma Linda University, where he became fascinated by the beauty of the mind. Dr. Binus spent many hours studying the emotional, physical, spiritual, and biological factors that influence mental health. This study made him passionate about treating the cause of mental illness, and not just masking the symptoms.
Dr. Binus completed a master’s degree in Public Health Education and enjoys conducting lectures and workshops on depression and other mental health topics. He also developed a mental health curriculum for the HIV/AIDS orphans of sub-Saharan Africa, which is currently being implemented in the country of Lesotho. Dr. Binus believes that proper mental-health education can greatly improve the lives of people and communities.
In March, 2011, Dr. Binus and his wife Melissa moved to Auburn and founded Beautiful Minds Medical. Since that time, the practice has grown to include psychiatry, counseling, and intensive outpatient care. Dr. Binus is grateful for the opportunity to work with the Auburn community, one beautiful mind at a time.
