Maria Weidmer Mikhail, M.D.
Dr. Weidmer-Mikhail is originally from Mexico City and completed medical school at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico. She grew up in a bilingual/bicultural household and is bilingual in Spanish/English. She completed an internship in Psychiatry at the University of Missouri in Kansas City, and then a psychiatry residency at UT Southwestern. She then continued on to a Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellowship also at UT Southwestern with an additional year of research in child psychiatry at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas, affiliated with UT Southwestern.
Dr. Weidmer-Mikhail trained as a child and adolescent psychiatrist and worked with children and young people at the University of Michigan, Tufts Medical School/New England Medical Center, and at Cambridge Hospital/ Harvard Medical School. While at these centers, she devoted considerable time running programs and inpatient treatment units for children and youth. She developed special skills in treating children with neuro-developmental disabilities, attachment disorders, and mood and psychotic disorders. She treated an outpatient population that included adults with autism and intellectual disabilities. While at St. Francis Hospital in Indianapolis, she started working more with adolescents in a partial hospital setting along with their families while continuing to work with younger children and adults with a variety of psychiatric problems.
Since she has moved to Dallas, her work at Presbyterian Hospital/Texas Health Resources has encompassed all age ranges. She has continued to treat young children and developed more experience in working with college age and university/graduate students. Treatment emphasis continues to be in the areas of diagnostic clarification and of pharmacological treatment for young people who often have not received any assessment in the past. Her goal for treatment is to help her patients more successfully perform to their potential, both academically and socially.
