Something about Joanna
Dr Joanna Guirgis is a general adult psychiatrist who treats patients with a wide range of conditions, including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, postnatal depression, mental illness related to chronic medical conditions and schizophrenia. She is also a WorkCover Approved Assessor of Permanent Impairment.
After completing her medical degree at the University of Adelaide, Joanna returned to Sydney where she completed her specialist training in psychiatry, working predominantly at the Prince of Wales and Sutherland Hospitals. She undertook advanced training in general adult psychiatry in both Sydney and London and is a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists.
Joanna’s approach to treatment is holistic, recognising that symptoms usually do not occur in isolation, but within a context of biological, emotional and social factors. Joanna works with each patient to develop an individualised treatment plan, tailored to his or her needs.
