Jeffrey Parks



MD (1999) Psychiatry, Medical College of Georgia

I completed my psychiatry residency training at UNC Chapel Hill in 2003 and have been practicing inpatient, emergency, and outpatient psychiatry here in North Carolina since that time. I have worked extensively with individuals with mood and anxiety disorders, psychotic disorders, and substance use disorders over those years. I favor an integrative model of care that involves psychotherapy tailored to the individual’s specific needs, judicious and evidence-based use of psychotropic medication where appropriate, along with attention to nutrition, exercise, and healthy methods of stress management. Outside of hospital and private practice work, I have also enjoyed working in a range of volunteer opportunities since 2003 including supervision of psychiatrists in training and providing medical services for homeless mentally ill individuals through the IFC shelter program in Chapel Hill.
