Special words from Dr. Ozbolt…
“It is both a privilege and an honor to support people in their most vulnerable states. To be trusted with information that is so deeply personal (and often painful) is not a characteristic of most job descriptions. When I was first introduced to psychiatry in medical school, I was struck by the depth of connection. I am still inspired by that. I work for MNA because I truly believe we offer exceptional care. I am proud to be associated with a program that is both medically sophisticated but yet administered with kindness.”
