Ryan W. Ingram, MD, grew up less than ten minutes from the practice. He has always had a passion for the beach, music, sports, and academics. Earlier honors included being a 2-time city wrestling champion while at Landstown Middle School, and winning 3 state championships at Norfolk Academy. He followed his sister to the University of Virginia, graduating with majors in Biology and Commerce, and does still enjoy treating Virginia Tech fans-Go Hoos! He returned home to attend medical school and Psychiatry residency at Eastern Virginia Medical School.
While at the University of Virginia, he found guitar to be a wonderful stress-reliever and passion. This influence is seen in the practice with the Brazilian Koa floors and the Martin acoustic that always hangs in the waiting room. Music will always be playing and patients are encouraged to select their preferred genre/artist while waiting and grab a hot beverage from the Keurig or bottled water. Please don't break my Martin during a waiting room jam session!!!
While training in this community he has gained knowledge on available resources to patients of all ages and has treated veterans from WWII to younger soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. He is a Board-Certified Psychiatrist and treats the full spectrum of psychiatric illness. His goal for the practice was to create a private, comfortable and therapeutic environment where patients could explore their mental health concerns and learn how to cope with stressful life events. Psychotherapy modalities range from supportive to cognitive-behavioral to psychodynamic, based on an individual patient's presentation.
