Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
Punyamurtula S. Kishore, M.D., MPH, FASAM Punyamurtula S. Kishore is the founder of Preventive Medicine Associates, Addiction Medicine Associates, and National Library of Addiction. Kishore has been a practicing public health scientist for over 30 years. He began his medical career as a primary care / family practice physician and then moved into a position as the Medical Director of the Washingtonian Center for Addictions, the first organization in the U.S. to recognize addiction as a disease. Their philosophy was an early precursor to the AA or 12-step program movement. Kishore has been a member of the American Society of Addiction Medicine since 1986 and has helped treat more than 200,000 addicts. Dr. Kishore treats addicts with his 'sobriety maintenance' method. This unique health model stresses the prescription of non-toxic substances, provides patients with coping skills they need to remain sober and tailors treatment to specific medical conditions. Kishore also administers "de-addiction" treatment, a process that treats emotional addiction as well as the physical addiction. Patients have access to home detoxification, an inexpensive and more effective option to in-patient care which allows them to maintain their dignity while learning how to cope with the temptations found in their own environments. In 1993, Kishore founded National Library of Addictions in Brookline, Massachusetts. To support work in addictions treatment, the Library is designed to provide a non-profit structure for addiction professionals to exchange ideas and to further the development of treatment methodologies. He was honored by the Boston Celtics with a "Heroes Among Us" award, given to those who make a significant impact on the lives of others. Kishore is also the recipient of a national Compassionate Caregiver Award, Honorable Mention, from the Schwartz Foundation. Kishore served as a faculty member of Harvard and as an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts. Currently, he serves as the Assistant Professor of Business Administration at Fitchburg State University. He holds his Master's Degree in Public Health from Harvard School of Public Health, in addition to Certificates in Addiction Studies and Forensic Psychology from Bridgewater State University.
