Dr. Travis’ dedication to his patients, colleagues, and to furthering the field makes him a steadfast role model for all in TPMG. — Robert Greenberg, MD, Physician-in-Chief
Adam Travis, MD hit the ground running when he joined the GSAA as Chief of Psychiatry in 2003.
Among the first of his many challenges, Dr. Travis was faced with aligning the separate psychiatry departments in the GSAA to work as one. He succeeded in creating a strong, unified department by, in his words, “fostering an environment where people can develop and realize their full potential, and then collaborate with and respect their colleagues.”
Dr. Travis has guided the growth of GSAA Psychiatry with an eye toward adding services that patients need and value most. Under his leadership, the GSAA has become a regional hub for Electroconvulsive Therapy and launched the region’s second program for ketamine infusion, a promising new treatment for depression. His department has long been a leader in providing treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, among other critical therapies.
Dr. Travis is currently guiding his department’s expansion, including the effort to create an inpatient Medicine/ Psychiatric Unit in Fremont slated to be the first of its kind in Kaiser Permanente Northern California.
“Dr. Travis has been an outstanding Chief, leader, and clinician from day one,” writes Robert Greenberg, MD, Physician-in-Chief, GSAA. “His dedication to his patients, colleagues, and to furthering the field makes him a steadfast role model for all in TPMG.”
