Joe Croizer (he/him) serves as Medical Director for Veritas Collaborative’s North Carolina eating disorder treatment centers. Joe brings a unique approach to his clinical work that he credits to his training as both a psychiatrist and a clinical psychologist.

Before joining the Veritas team in 2017, Joe held faculty positions in the medical schools at Duke University and the University of North Carolina (UNC). While at UNC, Joe was the Medical Director of the UNC Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders. In this role, he treated patients at the inpatient, partial hospitalization, and outpatient levels of care, as well as participated in research examining new treatment approaches for patients with eating disorders.

Joe is a passionate advocate for the care of patients with eating disorders, inspired by his experience working with patients in extreme physical and emotional distress and walking with them through recovery. He is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and is board-certified in General and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry.

Consistent with his training in psychiatry and psychology, Joe approaches his patients with a deep appreciation for the connection between mind and body and the scope of the mental and physical impacts of eating disorders. Joe understands that recovering from an eating disorder requires sustained, gradual effort through inevitable emotional and physical struggles. He believes that multidisciplinary treatment can help patients overcome their struggles by addressing disordered patterns of thoughts and feelings and reconnecting them to their deeply held values and goals.
