Bradley T. Wajda, D.O.
Doctor Of Osteopathic Medicine
Hello, I'm Dr.
Bradley Wajda - also known as "Dr. Brad'. I often joke with my patients
that I'm “practicing hoping to someday get it right”. During my 30 years of “practicing”
in the Central Valley, I have amassed extensive experience in adult and child
psychiatry as well as comprehensive substance abuse treatment. I have served in
many local inpatient and outpatient positions, including that of corporate
Medical Director for Kings View Corporation and Medical Director for the Kings
View Substance Abuse Treatment Program of Tulare County.
Esano Corporation represents my most recent endeavor to enhance the scope of mental health services available to the general public through a range of treatment options that are personalized to the needs of each individual. These options include Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Suboxone therapy, Vivitrol therapy, and Seromycin-assisted psychotherapy.
I received my B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Oklahoma with graduate work in radiation physics, and was awarded the degree of Doctor of Osteopathy from the Oklahoma College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1987. I completed my internship and residency in General Psychiatry at the UCSF-Fresno Medical Education Program in 1991.
I am board-certified in Psychiatry by the American Board of Physician Specialists. I am also a Diplomate of the American Board of Forensic Medicine, a Life Fellow of the American College of Forensic Examiners, and a buprenorphine-certified physician with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Additionally, I have served as a member of the oral and written psychiatric certification examination committees for the American Academy of Physician Specialists, and am a member of the Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons of California. I have authored numerous mental health articles in local and national periodicals, such as: Central California Life Magazine and the American Journal of Clinical Medicine. Teaching medical students is a very rewarding (and frequent) part of my life. I spent 2.5 years contributing weekly on the local NBC affiliate, was featured on In Focus Television segment hosted by Martin Sheen, and spent several years as Dr. Brad of Radio Psyched www.radiopsyched.com.
