Dr. Lincoln Denton Paine
Medical Director

After completing his Psychiatry residency at Tulane in 1965, two years in the Navy as a psychiatrist, and a two year fellowship in Child Psychiatry, Dr. Paine joined the River Oaks Medical Staff in early 1970, shortly after the hospital was founded. He spent three years in the New Orleans Psychoanalytic Institute before deciding that he wanted to devote himself to hospital work, and that has been his focus ever since. In 1988 he became the fourth Medical Director at River Oaks. For over forty years Dr. Paine has also done a weekly consultation at Waldo Burton Home for Boys.
