Dr. Stein was raised in the Twin Cities area and is a lifelong MN sports fan. After completing his Bachelors in Science at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, he returned to MN to attend the University of MN for medical school and once again cheer for the Gophers in person. In medical school, his interest in the field of psychiatry deepened and he went on to complete a General Psychiatry residency and then a Child Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship at the University of Minnesota. He has settled in the Twin Cities area in efforts to serve the mental health needs of young people and their families.

Dr. Stein is the clinical director and an attending clinician at the Brooklyn Park Partial Hospital Program (PHP) and operates a clinic out of the Brooklyn Park Medical Office Building. The clinic is used as a bridge for patients leaving PHP until they can see their outpatient provider. A common goal for the PHP and clinic site is patient-centered care that focuses on increasing functioning at home and functioning in school, including extracurricular activities and in social settings. The focus for care is not just on immediate obstacles and gains, but improving long-term trajectory as well.

In his free time, he enjoys coaching baseball, wakeboarding, Marvel movies, and has a longstanding love/hate relationship with the Vikings. In addition, as the president of the Minnesota Society for Child Adolescent Psychiatry, he focuses on local and national advocacy for children’s mental health with a goal to increase access to quality care.
