Rogers Memorial Hospital: Adds staff psychiatrist to Madison team

(Oconomowoc, WI) Rogers Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce that Kevin D. Kuntz, M.D., has joined its psychiatric team. Dr. Kuntz will serve as a staff psychiatrist, working with adults in the partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs at Rogers’ Madison location.

A graduate of the University of Iowa School of Medicine, Dr. Kuntz completed his psychiatric internship and residency at the University of Vermont School of Medicine. He is licensed by the State of Wisconsin and board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. A general adult psychiatrist with over 18 years of clinical experience, Dr. Kuntz is a member of the Neuroscience Education Institute who has an interest in all psychiatric disorders. He is well versed in a variety of psychotherapies and blends a therapeutic background with his work in psychopharmacology to individualize treatment plans for his patients.

“I am primarily a clinician, and Rogers excels at providing clinical psychiatry,” Dr. Kuntz said. “I am looking forward to adding to the growth of the Madison campus. My passion is clinical medicine. I believe every patient is unique, and I am focused on finding those unique characteristics to help develop individual treatment approaches. For example, although depression has a defined set of diagnostic criteria, these symptoms often play out differently in different people. Finding those differences can make for successful treatment. I always return to the unique background and qualities of each person to create an individualized plan that will lead to their recovery.”

Dr. Kuntz has over 14 years of experience in the academic setting as a former faculty member with the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health Department of Psychiatry. As a Clinical Associate Professor, he treated adult patients in a variety of clinical settings. He also taught medical students, supervised resident physicians, and lectured staff. His administrative experiences include the management of mental health services for insurance providers, implementation of electronic medical records, and oversight of the University of Wisconsin Medical Foundation’s retirement system. Prior to joining the University of Wisconsin, he was a partner in Physicians Plus Medical Group, a multi-specialty practice in Madison.

“I’m extremely excited to welcome Dr. Kuntz,” Peter M. Lake, M.D., Medical Director of Rogers Memorial Hospital-Oconomowoc, said. “He has an excellent mix of clinical experience and understanding of today’s psychiatric patients and issues. Dr. Kuntz has the ability to provide not only great care but physician leadership to the many dedicated staff at Rogers Memorial as well. I know Dr. Kuntz well from our previous time together at Physicians Plus and UW-Health. He will be a perfect fit on many levels at Rogers.”
