Justin Romano, MD completed his fellowship training at Creighton University in Omaha.
Dr. Romano originally sought a career as a surgeon, but found his calling after taking a class and completing a rotation in psychiatry. “So many fields of medicine are more focused on preventing people from dying, but psychiatry is more focused on helping people live their best lives. We are in a mental health crisis right now, especially for young people. I am so glad I am in a position to help them learn how to make the most out of their lives and heal from past traumas.”
His patient care philosophy is to help young people heal from the past – not simply use medications to mask the symptoms – and teach them how to grow into happy and functional individuals.
Dr. Romano is originally from Cheyenne and chose to start his career here because child and adolescent mental health resources are limited and he wants children here to have access to high-level mental health care for decades to come.
When he is not caring for patients, he enjoys spending time with his family, rooting for the Denver Broncos, downhill skiing, cycling, hiking and paddle boarding.
He also hosts his own podcast called “Millennial Mental Health Channel” as a way to teach others about mental health.
