Dr. Bruce Semon has practiced psychiatry in Ozaukee and the surrounding counties since 1997.  He provides a full range of psychiatric medication services for adults, adolescents and children.  He is particularly helpful to patients who have experienced medication failures or intolerable side effects.  He attends well and closely to his patients, understanding that sometimes their primary care or other doctors have not understood or not responded well to them, leaving patients feeling frustrated and upset.  Dr. Semon strives to give each patient a supportive, genuine and warm therapeutic experience as well as medication options that are directed at supporting medical needs.  When appropriate, he also provides alternative options, such as nutrition education and homeopathic care.
