Kathryn Klunk, MD

My career is dedicated to the field of Emergency Psychiatry and providing excellent clinical care for patients with acute presentations as part of a stellar team of coworkers.  I am also active in developing guidelines for competent mental health care in the Emergency setting, including ensuring adequate medical clearance and detailing processes and procedures for a complete mental health evaluation.  I am committed to the education our next generations of psychiatrists as they develop into capable, competent, compassionate providers who advocate for their patients and have an eye to equitable utilization of resources.
