Ana Despina Stan MD, PhD, is a psychiatrist specializing in psychotic disorders,
including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, as well as difficult-to-treat
depression. She began work at Livingston HealthCare in 2016.
Dr. Stan earned her medical degree in her native country of Romania at
the Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest, followed
by her PhD in neuroscience in the U.S. at UT Southwestern Medical School
in Dallas, Texas.
“I am overjoyed by a lot of stories of success that I’ve witnessed,
where people have managed to learn to live with mental illness and to
deal with adversity and have ended up having very successful lives,”
Dr. Stan says. “I enjoy getting to know my patients and the problems
they present with, and I enjoy helping them find the best evidence-based
solutions to those problems.”
She savors Livingston HealthCare’s small atmosphere and the opportunities
it allows to forge closer relationships in her community and with her
colleagues. Dr. Stan is also a proud new mother as of 2017.
