Addiction medicine is Dr. Mettetal's passion. "The face of addiction is often times a son or daughter…it is truly a family disease because the whole family is affected." he says. "There is no way a provider can be effective in helping those recovering without factoring this truth into the treatment he provides. This I have always diligently sought to do."
With an extensive background in Neurology, Dr. Mettetal offers a unique understanding of addiction, which is primarily a neurological disease. But it's more than mere science for Dr. Mettetal, who says, "Watching patients become better parents, better spouses, and better workers is very rewarding and motivates my work immensely." Dr. Mettetal is Board Certified by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ABAM).
