Dr. Whisenhunt believes in the value of spirituality and the humanities in maximizing each patient's potential beyond what can be achieved through neuroscience and chemistry alone. Dr. Whisenhunt specializes in the treatment of adults with psychiatric and substance use disorders. He has worked in emergency, inpatient, residential, outpatient, intensive outpatient, detoxification, and correctional settings. He completed his residency training at the University of Southern California's Keck School of Medicine and LAC+USC Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, serving as chief resident in his fourth year.
He earned his Medical Doctorate from The University of Alabama School of Medicine at UAB Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama. Prior to his medical education, he received a Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering with a minor in computer-based research from The University of Alabama.
While at The University of Alabama, he studied abroad at Oxford University in England in 2006 and worked for the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration in Hawaii in 2007. Dr. Whisenhunt believes mental illnesses arise from complex but identifiable interactions among biological, psychological, and social factors.
