LEWISTON — Tri-County Mental Health Services announces the addition of two physicians and a nurse practitioner to the medical staff of the region’s largest mental health agency. Dr. James Krainin, Dr. William Berlingieri and Rebecca Chandler, PMH-NP, CS, will provide adult psychiatric services, including medication management, from various Tri-County Mental Health Services locations.

Dr. Berlingieri is located in the agency’s largest clinic, 1155 Lisbon St., Lewiston. He completed his residency and internship at SUNY Medical Center in Buffalo, N.Y., and has worked in the Portland area in private practice as well as with the Maine Medical Center Access Program.

He graduated magna cum laude in chemistry and physics from Harvard College in 1962, and received his medical degree from Harvard in 1966. He received his psychiatric training at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York and then served as a psychiatrist in the U.S. Air Force for two years during the Vietnam era. Dr. Krainin and his wife, long-time fans of Maine and weekend visitors, moved to Naples in 2007 when he closed his private practice in Massachusetts.
