David Widitz, MD - Genesis Health System

David Widitz, MD

I really enjoy connecting with people in ways that facilitate the sharing of deeper thoughts and emotions-- stuff that's typically tough to talk about. 

My goal is to help people deal with difficulties in how they think, feel, and behave. I chose to specialize in psychiatry because mental health affects all areas of our lives.
