Alexander Welge, MD
Currently accepting new patients.
Dr. Welge completed his Residency at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (NYC Health and Hospitals: Elmhurst). For most of the past 10 years, Dr. Welge has primarily worked as an Outpatient Psychiatrist in a Community-based Behavioral Health Center in rural Pennsylvania, where he enjoyed building relationships with clients. Dr. Welge also has a Master's in Physiology, and that background served as a strength, as one's medical issues become as important as one's psychiatric issues as one ages, given the changes in kidney function, thyroid function, etc., and as the body and the mind are in the same space, they naturally affect each other.
He enjoys teaching and helping people understand how their bodies work, and how the medications work to help them feel better, thus empowering patients with the knowledge to make informed decisions. Dr. Welge also has extensive experience in the realm of Substance Abuse, and recently served as a Medical Director for Drug and Alcohol Abuse services. For approximately 3 and a half years, Dr. Welge helped to run a 16-bed Inpatient Dual Diagnosis / MICA unit where he saw patients daily for 21 consecutive days struggling with Chemical Dependency. Dr. Welge does not prescribe controlled substances. That experience helped him learn how to target the receptors that clients were self-medicating, in a non-habit-forming way, thereby helping to balance their chemistry, while helping them come to terms with their narrative, and ultimately learning to live their best life.
