If you are struggling and something’s just not right, medical treatment through medication or other therapies may be recommended to help balance brain chemistry. Turn to Keely Elgethun, MD, a psychiatrist at Avera Medical Group University Psychiatry Associates in Sioux Falls, SD.
Compassionate Care for Your Mental Health
As a psychiatrist, Dr. Elgethun is part of a multidisciplinary team at Avera to help patients regain passion and hope in their lives. She believes the foundation of a great patient-doctor relationship is the ability to speak freely and without judgment.
She has special interests in:
- Eating disorders
- Bipolar personality disorder
- Suicidal tendencies
“Every day is a little different, and that’s because I am working with different people with different personalities and different visions for their lives. It’s beautiful that I can be involved and care for the whole person — physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually,” she says.
In her free time, Dr. Elgethun enjoys spending time with her family and staying fit through running and hiking.
