GREENEVILLE, TN – Board-certified psychiatrist William C. Diebold will begin seeing patients at Takoma Adventist Hospital’s Center for Outpatient Behavioral Health Services early next month.
Dr. Diebold, who currently sees inpatients daily at Takoma’s Senior Care Unit, will begin seeing outpatients July 6 at the clinic, located in the Everett and Carolyn Coolidge Volunteer Conference Center. Diebold will be available on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Diebold received his medical degree from the University of Louisville, and completed his residency at Karl Menninger School of Psychiatry in Topeka, Kansas.
Diebold will be joining psychiatric nurse practitioner Rhonda Malina and licensed clinical social worker Patricia Chesnut.
Diebold and Malina provide initial psychiatric assessments, medication management and ongoing individual therapy. Chesnut is available for individual and family/couples therapy.
“We have a very well rounded, patient friendly program,” Diebold said. “And, we offer our services with complete confidentiality.”
The clinic will treat adult patients 18 years old and older who suffer from various behavioral and psychiatric disorders, such as dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss, depression, anxiety, bipolar and eating disorders, Diebold said.
“There is a great need for these services in this community,” he said. “Our population is aging and we recognize the need. We are pleased to offer our services to local residents who, with treatment, won’t have to feel as bad for as long.”
Malina has a master’s degree in nursing from the University of Florida. She is board certified in psychiatric mental health nursing and primary care nursing.
Chesnut has a master’s degree in social work, with a concentration in family therapy, from Radford University.
