Scottsdale Psychiatrist – Marie Gronley M.D. – Credentials
Thank you for your interest in my background and credentials. I have been in practice since 1997. I earned a BS in Biology from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. I graduated from medical school from the University of Illinois in Peoria IL. and received my MD degree which qualifies me as a General Practitioner. I went on to successfully complete a four year residency in Psychiatry from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis MO at the Barnes-Jewish Hospital in 1997.
This residency program was among the top 25 programs in the nation. Immediately after residency I relocated to Phoenix and I have been practicing psychiatry in Scottsdale and Phoenix ever since. I take several hours of continuing education every year, and read an abundance of research studies (Some of which I post on this site under articles of interest) in order to stay on top of the latest trends and treatments in my field.
Experience is Important When Seeking a Scottsdale Psychiatrist or Phoenix Psychiatrist
I have worked with the State of Arizona Mental Health Services which was at the time under the management of “Value Options”. During this time, I worked with the severely mentally ill with an PACT team consisting of a group of social workers, disability assistants, and Registered Nurses. Our goal was to treat the patients’ illnesses and get them re-integrated with society so they could live fulfilling lives and enjoy a life outside of the traditional in-patient hospital domain that used to be the norm with this patient population.
Look for Discernment When Seeking a Scottsdale Psychiatrist or Phoenix Psychiatrist
I have worked in several private practices and have had my own practice in Scottsdale since 2001. I enjoy the team approach to healing because it allows my clients to benefit from the professionalism of several practitioners instead of one doctor attempting to be all things to all people. Therefore, I work closely with other medical specialists (i.e. Gynecologists, Neurologists, Dermatologists, etc.), Psychologists, Social Workers, Nutritionists as well as Primary Care Physicians and clergy. Only after years of clinical experience have I been able to develop a discernment which greatly assists me in diagnosing and offering the best treatment for the most positive prognosis in dealing with each individual that I treat. This discernment also allows me to work together with the patient in finding an effective treatment plan that is comfortable for them. I cannot over-emphasize the importance of my clinical experience that I have developed since 1997 while being mentored by some of the top docs in the field of psychiatry!
On a personal note, I am happily married, very involved in the community and ministry work through my church. I believe in living a balanced life of integrity and truth which is essential to living a healthy fruitful life. Please check with the Arizona Medical Boards for any grievances or complaints against me or any other doctor. The Medical Boards are the one site where only valid complaints are posted.
Searching for a competent Scottsdale psychiatrist, consider experience and discernment as top qualifications in your selection process.
