Good Samaritan is excited to announce the arrival of two new psychiatrists,
Drs. Alexander Radnovich and Ahmed Montaser.
Alexander Radnovich, MD, adult psychiatrist, knew he wanted to be a physician
when he was doing community service at his local nursing home where his
mother was a nurse. “During my volunteer work, I became interested
in becoming a doctor. When I was in college taking some psychology courses,
I became fascinated with the brain and how it worked,” said Dr.
Radnovich. He graduated from Indiana University School of Medicine with
his Doctorate of Medicine in 2006 and his Doctorate of Philosophy in 2008.
The opportunity for growing the psychiatry services within the organization,
combined with his wife’s local ties to the area, were what attracted
him to practicing at Good Samaritan. “I am excited to spend time
with patients, teach residents and expand the field of neuroscience and
psychiatry here locally,” he said. In his free time, Dr. Radnovich
enjoys spending time with his wife and is an avid gamer, including video
and board games.
Dr. Radnovich is accepting new patients at his office at the Samaritan
Center on 515 Bayou Street. Those interested in scheduling an appointment
can do so by calling 812-886-6800.
Child psychiatrist, Ahmed Montaser, MD, has also joined Good Samaritan.
Wanting to find a career where he could help others in need, Dr. Montaser
chose to become a physician. “Being a doctor gives me the opportunity
to make positive changes in people’s lives,” said he said.
He earned his medical degree from Tanta University School of Medicine
in Egypt in 2004.
Dr. Montaser’s passion for psychiatry comes from his desire to practice
holistic medicine, which is an approach that incorporates biological,
psychological and social factors that contribute to illness and well-being.
“I have always enjoyed working with children, teenagers and families,”
he said. “Being able to identify psychiatry disorders and behavioral
problems early in life means you have a better chance of treatment.”
Dr. Montaser decided to join Good Samaritan because he was impressed with
the welcoming and inviting atmosphere. In his spare time, he enjoys relaxing,
reading new books, and spending time with his family.
Patients can schedule an appointment with Dr. Montaser by calling 812-885-2720.
His office is located at The Willows on 1901 Willow Street in Vincennes.
