Dmitry M. Arbuck, MD

President and Medical Director

Dr. Arbuck is certified by the American Academy of Pain Management in addition to the board of Psychiatry and Neurology. He practices Psychiatry and Pain Medicine as dual specialties, helping patients with the most complicated conditions that may have become resistant to treatment.

I combine Psychiatry and Pain Management specialties in everything I do clinically. This allows me to expend my scope of practice and achieve what otherwise would be impossible. A natural fusion of Psychiatry and Medicine allows for better treatment results, broader expertise and a unique positioning on a healthcare market.
