Michael J. Sedlacek, M.D.

After graduating with honors from Creighton University in 1981, I began medical school at UNMC where I chose to dedicate my career to Psychiatry. I have been fortunate to be affiliated with Psychiatric Services, P.C. since completing my residency training at the combined Creighton/Nebraska program in 1989.

My personal goal is to use my medical expertise to stay on the cutting edge of psychiatric medicine with a primary focus being psychopharmacology. I greatly value ongoing medical education and have been fortunate over the past 10 years to train with numerous national leaders on the latest psychiatric developments and medications. I have been able to use this knowledge to train community physicians, P.A.'s and other practitioners. I have enjoyed volunteer faculty appointments at both Creighton University and UNMC, and feel these teaching experiences make me a better doctor.

I am very blessed and honored to have the unique opportunity to be intimately involved in the lives of my patients. I support their recovery at what may be one of the more challenging times of their lives. I believe that open and honest two-way communication fosters growth and development.

Our entire group has emphasized leadership in the mental community. I have served as the President of the Nebraska Psychiatric Society and have served on or chaired multiple committees at Methodist Hospital and Richard Young Hospital.

I truly believe that I could find no more rewarding career than the position I have with Psychiatric Services. Our team specializes in psychopharmacology with expertise in evaluation, diagnosis and treatment formulation. Our office uses a holistic approach to care involving physicians, therapists, and a psychologist allows us to provide patient centered, cost effective, and high quality care.

Public Speaking

Several of our physicians are trained promotional speakers for a variety of pharmaceutical companies. These doctors have been chosen because of their experience and expertise in their field and because of the respect amongst their peers. We believe this offers us the opportunity to meet with and discuss the current issues in our field with the primary thought leaders and researchers of psychiatry. Additionally it allows us to interact on a local, regional and national level with our psychiatric peers.
