Joshua Delaney, MD
I am a psychiatrist for adults at Memorial Healthcare System. I care for patients with a variety of psychiatric concerns including severe depression and bipolar disorder, as well as those with schizophrenia. I treat the acute symptoms of psychiatric conditions to help stabilize patients so they can function outside the hospital.
I have always been fascinated with the human mind and so decided to pursue a career that allows me to focus on this most complex human organ. We all grow up in different environments, have different experiences and different reactions to those experiences, and these factors unfold in a distinctive way to make each of us the person we are today. Despite our pasts, there is so much opportunity for growth, especially as we continue to learn more about the brain and human behavior.
I enjoy interacting with patients and hearing about their lives, how they were brought up, what may have led to their hospitalization and helping them get back to what they loved doing most.
I use a shared decision-making model with my patients, meaning we come to conclusions and decisions together. My patients are involved in the process of treatment just as much as I am. I educate on the risks and benefits of different choices, but at the end of the day, the patient gets the final say, as it should be.
