Benjamin R. Weger, MD

Dr. Weger completed subspecialty training at Vanderbilt University Medical Center to treat the full spectrum of psychiatric conditions (e.g. anxiety, mood, ADHD, etc.) in children, adolescents, and adults. He has additional training and experience in patients with PTSD/complex trauma, dual diagnosis (substance use + another mental health diagnosis), first episode psychosis, psychiatric comorbidities with autoimmune disorders and infections (e.g. HIV), traumatic brain injuries, psychiatric conditions within LGBTQ+ populations, and behavioral concerns in autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders. His expertise lies in medication management, but also incorporates psychotherapeutic and wellness strategies into treatment plans. During his medical education, he completed a separate program specifically focused on how to help patients at the intersection of their health and rural settings. Dr. Weger is excited to return to practice in the Gibson City area after previously rotating through GAHHS during his training.
