About Daniel Wurzelmann, MD
Dr. Wurzelmann is fascinated by the mind and how people think and act. He has always enjoyed trying to understand how people arrive at different places in life, and it brings him a lot of pleasure to help people feel better. Daniel knows that treating patients means more than only prescribing medication. When working with patients he considers the various biological, psychological and social factors that are contributing to a patient’s current state, working to understand how someone’s external environment and psychology are affecting their wellbeing while looking for ways to alleviate their difficulties. In addition to staying up-to-date on the latest peer-reviewed developments in psychiatry, Dr. Wurzelmann engages in a rigorous code of ethics surrounding his practice, such as refusing any free gifts or food from pharmaceutical, device or testing companies, in order to make sure that his decisions are based on his own expertise and evidence-based knowledge. Daniel is also clinically fluent in Spanish.

I am very impressed with Dr. Wurzelmann. He had a rapid grasp of my issues. He suggested a creative way to identify a medication that I could tolerate. He explained everything thoroughly. He was quite kind in his questioning .
