Dr. M. Haroon Burhanullah is a board-certified psychiatrist with experience in consultation psychiatry, emergency psychiatry, and geriatric neuropsychiatry. He graduated from Dow Medical College in Pakistan before completing postdoctoral work in neuroimaging at Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Burhanullah was a fellow in geriatric psychiatry at Johns Hopkins and did his psychiatric residency at Bergen Regional Medical Center, where he graduated as Executive Chief Resident. He has done clinical research on mood and memory disorders and Alzheimer's disease.
While at Bergen, Dr. Burhanullah was awarded the American Psychiatric Association’s Resident’s Recognition Award and was elected President of the Resident’s Chapter of the New Jersey Psychiatry Association. He has published in several peer-reviewed journals, including the highly respected American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.

Dr. Burhanullah is deeply committed to treating patients with complicated medical and neurological illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy Body disease, and traumatic brain injuries. He is passionate about working with the most vulnerable patients, including those with moderate to severe behavioral problems whose families often suffer from caregiver burnout.
Another cornerstone of Dr. Burhanullah’s professional practice is his experience in telepsych, which he deems valuable for the access and ease it provides to both doctors and patients. Though telepsych appointments are remote - he believes they can be just as beneficial as meeting in person.
