Meet Dr. Nicole Dorio

Company about
Dr. Nicole Dorio, Mentis Forensic Psychiatry LLC      I established Mentis Forensic Psychiatry in 2016, offering forensic psychiatry services to all of New Jersey. I am licensed to practice medicine in New Jersey and am board-certified in general psychiatry and forensic psychiatry. I have been qualified as an expert witness in psychiatry in New Jersey Superior Court and have been asked to provide testimony in courts across the state.

I am a graduate of the Rutgers University – Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship Program, under the direction of Dr. Rusty Reeves. Since my completion of the program in July 2012, I have worked with maximum and “supermax” security state prison inmates and civilly committed, chronically ill adults. In addition to providing services at Mentis, I am currently employed at the Ann Klein Special Treatment Unit in a forensic and clinical capacity, evaluating the risk of sexual recidivism in adult males, and also diagnosing and treating mental illness in the population. I “wear two hats” in the facility, which my personal ethics allow only because I keep these groups separate – it is important to me to keep my clinical work and forensic work separate when treating and evaluating an individual.

My services are available to the public and private sector for criminal and civil cases. Please contact me by telephone to discuss the details of your case at (908) 458-6670.

What is Forensic Psychiatry?

Company about


Dr. Nicole Dorio, Mentis Forensic Psychiatry LLC
     "Forensic psychiatry is a medical subspecialty that includes research and clinical practice in the many areas in which psychiatry is applied to legal issues. While some forensic psychiatrists may specialize exclusively in legal issues, almost all psychiatrists may, at some point, have to work within one of the many areas in which the mental health and legal system overlap." (Source: www.aapl.org/org.htm)

  • Insanity Defense/Criminal Responsibility
  • Risk Assessments (e.g. violence, sexual recidivism)
