James Peter Wolak, MD

As a hospital-based psychiatrist, I treat patients whose symptoms have become too acute to be managed in an outpatient setting. I feel privileged for the opportunity to help others when they are most vulnerable. I work alongside a talented group of professionals who inspire me with their compassion and dedication to patient care. Among the most rewarding aspects of my job is my involvement with resident and medical student education.
