Nicholas Brown, DO
Dr. Brown has been recognized by colleagues for being a strong patient advocate. He is the son of a psychiatrist father and psychiatric nurse mother. Originally thought he would pursue his medical career in emergency medicine. He appreciated psychiatric issues not fully being addressed in the medical field. He devoted his residency training to include a wide breadth of psychiatric healing modalities.
His training has included: medication management, psychotherapy, trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy, addiction treatment, battle field acupuncture, osteopathic manipulative treatment, ketamine assisted psychotherapy, electroconvulsive therapy, and transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy. His research focus and Grand Rounds presentation as a 4th year resident was on psilocybin assisted psychotherapy, although currently working on offering those services in the future. Dr. Brown includes dual medication management and psychotherapy for all patients he sees. Basic lab work is completed to ensure no physiologic issues are compounding psychiatric conditions. Support and guidance on vitamin supplementation, diet and exercise strategies provided as appropriate.
