Mike Reed, MD

Dr. Mike Reed graduated magna cum laude from the University of Tennessee, earning a degree in Zoology with a special emphasis on Ethology, the study of the instinctual behavior of animals in the wild. Dr. Reed was a charter member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society at The James Quillen College of Medicine. He then completed his psychiatry residency at Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was the recipient of the Marc H. Hollender Award for outstanding performance by a resident. Since the completion of his medical education, Dr. Reed has worked to help his patients understand the nature of human instinct as it drives them through the wilds of their own lives.

Psychotherapy is key to the care that Dr. Reed provides his patients. Unlike more than 85% of other psychiatrists, Dr. Reed does not ask his patients to see other clinicians to receive psychotherapy as he himself is well trained and experienced in providing that aspect of care. (Even so, Dr. Reed welcomes anyone who is already in treatment with another psychotherapist as he can add a synergistic dimension to their experience.)

Depression, anxiety, insomnia, and many psychiatric problems are due to chronic inflammation of the brain, a fact most doctors do not know yet. Dr. Reed, on the cutting edge of this aspect of psychiatry, integrates it into the assessment and treatment of all his patients.

Tens of thousands of hours of clinical experience have provided Dr. Reed with wisdom useful for untangling complexities of all sorts. He welcomes yours.
