“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” – Winston Churchill
Todd M. MacKillop, PA-C
I am a seasoned mental health professional with a background spanning over two decades in various medical domains. Throughout my career, I have excelled in Internal Medicine, Hospital Medicine, General Surgery, and Critical Care. However, it was in Psychiatry that I discovered my true passion and expertise.
My unwavering commitment to patient care and my deep understanding of the complexities of mental health have shaped my clinical interests. I have developed a broad range of expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of Bipolar Spectrum Disorders, Anxiety and Depressive Disorders, as well as Substance Use Disorders. When working with patients, I approach each individual with empathy, compassion, and a dedication to promoting holistic wellbeing.
Beyond my professional accomplishments, I am a devoted husband and father, understanding the importance of nurturing strong personal relationships. During my leisure time, I find solace in woodworking, exploring different languages, indulging in movies, and appreciating diverse musical genres.
I am driven by a genuine passion for mental health and a firm commitment to providing comprehensive care. My goal is to make a positive impact on the lives of my patients, empowering them to achieve optimal mental wellness and lead fulfilling lives.
