Psychiatry and Behavioral Health
Dr. Alison Netski, an associate professor and chair of the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health, specializes in the treatment of adults with a broad range of psychiatric illness, including mood, psychotic, and anxiety disorders.
Board certified from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in Psychiatry and Psychosomatic Medicine, Dr. Netski attended the University of Nevada Reno School of Medicine and completed her residency in psychiatry at the University of Maryland/Sheppard Pratt.
In addition to her clinical practice, Dr. Netski, who often provides consultation services at University Medical Center, is actively involved in the education of her residents and medical students. She is proud that so many of them are now working at major hospitals in Southern Nevada, helping serve a community in great need of their compassion and expertise.
While attending the University of Nevada, Reno, School of Medicine, she noted that psychiatric patients often did not receive proper care because nurses feared them. That people in desperate need of care were not receiving it propelled her to enter the field of psychiatry.
