Meet Dr. Josef Witt-Doerring, a board-certified psychiatrist with a specialization in identifying and treating psychiatric adverse drug reactions.
In 2020, he co-founded a private practice dedicated to assessing and treating patients suffering from these reactions, and has since become a trusted expert in the field, particularly when it comes to severe withdrawal injuries.
Dr. Witt-Doerring has had the privilege of helping several patients with litigation related to psychiatric drug injuries, thanks to his prior experience as a Medical Officer in the Division of Psychiatry at the Food and Drug Administration. There, he analyzed emergent adverse drug reactions and proposed modifications to drug labeling, giving him a unique perspective on the risks and benefits of psychiatric interventions in both the short and long term.
In addition, Dr. Witt-Doerring has worked at numerous pharmaceutical companies in clinical research and drug safety positions, bringing valuable experience from both the regulatory and clinical settings to his practice. He completed a fellowship in Psychiatric Drug Development at Janssen Research & Development and Drexel College of Medicine, as well as his psychiatric residency at Baylor College of Medicine, and earned his medical degree from the University of Queensland Medical School in Australia.
With a deep commitment to patient education, Dr. Witt-Doerring’s long-term mission is to create free high-quality educational content that empowers the general public to make informed decisions about their mental health care. Thanks to his extensive experience and highly specialized understanding of psychiatric interventions, patients can trust that they are in capable hands when seeking treatment for adverse drug reactions at his private practice.
