(Oconomowoc, Wis.) Rogers Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce that Matthew Kleban, M.D., will join its psychiatric team on May 13, 2013. Dr. Kleban will serve as a staff psychiatrist, working with children and adolescents in the day treatment program and on the inpatient unit at Rogers’ Milwaukee (West Allis) location.
Dr. Kleban received his medical degree from New York Medical College in Valhalla, N.Y., followed by his internship in medicine at Westchester Medical Center. He completed his residency in psychiatry and his fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry at Saint Vincent’s Hospital and Medical Center in New York City. He is board certified in psychiatry as well as child and adolescent psychiatry.
“Each child deserves a chance of receiving thoughtful, tailored treatment,” Dr. Kleban said. “I enjoy helping children and their families to get their lives back on course. By looking at behavioral issues from a new angle, we can get to the root of the problem and provide a custom treatment plan that will achieve the best results.”
A member of the American Psychiatric Association and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Dr. Kleban enjoys the challenge of helping children who have been considered “treatment resistant.” His primary clinical interests also include mood disorders and trauma.
“I am excited by Rogers’ national reputation as a facility with a similar philosophy as mine,” Dr. Kleban continued. “Their interest in providing good care to patients and families came through clearly as I spoke with the medical staff and administrators.”
Prior to joining the team at Rogers Memorial Hospital, Dr. Kleban served as a staff psychiatrist in New York, working primarily with children and adolescents in positions with the New York City Children’s Center and Mount Sinai Medical Center. He also served as Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Services at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
