MY BACKGROUND :

DSC_2955I was born in Poland, where I graduated from Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland . Because of my fascination with the biology of the human brain, I started practicing Neurology in Poland for a few years. My interest in Psychiatry was just a natural transition in my attempt to get a deeper understanding of our brain and our mind. In 1997, I moved to Texas where I had my General Psychiatry Residency Training at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, TX.

I relocated to Chicago in 2000. There I completed my fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Chicago, IL.

During that time, I was a member of the University of Chicago Medical Obesity Treatment Team.
I have been treating children, adolescents and adults, both outpatient and inpatient since joining a private practice in Fort Walton Beach in 7/2002. My interests include applications of psychopharmacology and genetics in Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatry.

Professional Experience
Neurology Attending Physician in Krakow, Poland: Inpatient Neurology Department (Inpatient Neurology Practice) (1993-1996)
After receiving my medical degree at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, I began practicing neurology. It was this interest in the human brain that naturally parlayed itself into a career of studying and practicing child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry in the United States.
Private Psychiatric Practice in Fort Walton Beach, FL (2002-Present)
The last 11 years have been spent at my current private practice where I have provided both inpatient and outpatient psychiatric care. Inpatient care is handled at the Fort Walton Beach Medical Center where I am an attending psychiatrist.

In 2012, I completed an Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) Fellowship at Emory University which qualified me to perform ECT at the Developmental Center in Fort Walton Beach. I am also qualified to perform neuropsychological testing while also treating patients with medication management (psychopharmacology).

Certifications
Certification by American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (2003)
