Evan Silvi, M.D., Board Certified Psychiatrist

About Me

After receiving my M.D. from Creighton University School of Medicine in 2004 I began studying internal medicine. During this time I learned that a patient's medical presentation is frequently driven by a combination of their environment, their internal representation of challenges, as well as the various supports available to them. After this year I proceeded towards a residency in Psychiatry at East Carolina University (ECU). I was then accepted into the Child/Adolescent Fellowship Program, also at ECU. While there, I was exposed to patients in a variety of settings from the inpatient behavioral health unit to the student counseling center at the university. I trained in the art of psychopharmacology as well as the utilization of therapeutic interventions to treat patients with illnesses across the spectrum from Autism to Tourette's Disorder. After completing my residency and fellowship I continued to work in both the inpatient and outpatient settings with patents in all stages of life. 

My areas of interest include bullying, self-injurious behaviors, and the impact of suicide attempts and completed suicides on individuals and larger systems (family, school, neighborhoods, etc.). I believe that any interaction with a patient is an opportunity to effect change and reflection and that medications are only 1 of many tools that positively impact a patient's life. I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with a number of talented therapists in my career and have learned the valuable lesson from my patients that medication is not always warranted and may in fact increase the burden of suffering that people experience.
