Veritas Collaborative, a specialty hospital system for the treatment of eating disorders, today announced that Dr. Jonathan Levy has joined the organization as medical director of its Atlanta clinic.
“I’m so pleased to welcome Dr. Jonathan Levy to our team,” said Dr. Anna Tanner, executive director of Veritas’ Atlanta clinic. “His robust training and experience treating patients with eating disorders will ensure that the medical care we offer continues to be top notch.”
Veritas’ Atlanta center opened Feb. 1 at 6600 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd., Bldg. 400, Ste. 150 and offers outpatient and intensive outpatient medical services for children, adolescents, and young adults with known or suspected eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder.
Levy joined Veritas on Dec. 11 and will oversee all medical services at the clinic.
Prior to joining Veritas, Levy was the primary psychiatrist at The Renfrew Center of Georgia and a staff psychiatrist at Georgia Regional Hospital Atlanta in the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities. Levy also had a private practice where he provided outpatient psychiatric assessments, consultation, therapy, and psychopharmacologic management to children, adolescents, and adults.
“I feel incredibly proud to join the team at Veritas Collaborative,” said Levy. “This organization provides a much-needed resource in the Atlanta community, and I couldn’t be happier to work for a company known for providing high-quality eating disorders care.”
Levy earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Emory University and later completed medical school and residency at the Emory University School of Medicine.
During his fellowship and residency, Levy was not only appointed Chief Resident, but also received the Resident Teaching Award for outstanding teaching interest and skill as determined by feedback by residents, medical students, and residency program directors.
Levy is a member of the Georgia Psychiatric Physicians Association, the American Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, the Georgia Council on Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and is a fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. He also serves as an adjunct assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences in the Department of Psychiatry at Emory University School of Medicine.
