About

Our Name

Dogon is derived from an African tribe in Mali of the same name. The Dogon have amazed and confounded Western astronomers with their uncanny knowledge of the stars. Without technology or scientific method, they somehow had knowledge of Sirius’ companion star, Sirius B, which is invisible to the naked eye.

To Samuel E. Dey, Jr., M.D., the founder and Medical Director of Dogon, the Dogon tribe represents vision and freedom, as the Dogon were the only African tribe never to be enslaved. Vision and freedom are the two qualities Dr. Dey wants to preserve within the psychiatric profession.
