Philosophy & Services Provided
Dr. Reznicek believes everyone, regardless of age, gender, IQ, ethnicity, or background, wants the same qualities in their lives:
Medications can be helpful in some situations, but it is well known they may have limitations and unwanted side effects.
With this in mind, Dr. Reznicek believes you should treat the whole person: body, mind and spirit.
He also believes:
everyone, despite their circumstances or history, is capable of great things and every day is a new day.
everyone deserves to have hope and the chance to pursue their talents and passions.
everyone is unique and that each individual deserves treatment that fits their own, unique needs.
It's Dr. Reznicek's goal to help his patients achieve the safety, security, love, understanding and purpose they desire.
Dr. Reznicek is experienced in the administration of psychiatric medication, but he takes a conservative approach. He will prescribe them if he feels they will help, but medications usually play a limited or temporary role for most emotional struggles.
You will receive all the information you need to make informed decisions about whether medication therapy is right for you.

Child & Adolescent Care
Dr. Reznicek treats both adults and children and has extensive experience in child/adolescent counseling. During a new patient visit, he meets with the family and the individual to get a thorough history. He understands that for the child/adolescent, the family knows the patient best and is with them the most, therefore, he works closely with the family to identify stressors and develop techniques for management. A new patient appointment is usually 60 minutes.
He also manages psychiatric medications for children. Only in rare cases will he prescribe medications for children under 6. For children ages 6 to 12,he will prescribe conservatively, and will usually recommend non-pharmacologic therapies before medications. For adolescents, he will prescribe and manage medications when they seem to be indicated.
Dr. Reznicek is a published author and experienced speaker. He has appeared on numerous regional, national and international talk-radio shows.
