Difference Makers - Expert Rehabilitation Staff | Lakeview Health


What it means to be a “Difference Maker”

It means having the training, passion, professionalism, and experience to help our patients succeed. Our three M.D.s work on-site every day to look after our patients while our therapists also see patients daily. Our team of difference makers work together to help patients build a solid foundation for their long-term recovery.

My colleagues and I are committed to working together to help people turn their lives around. At Lakeview Health, we take a very practical multi-disciplinary approach. We have addiction specialists, psychiatrists, internists, pain management specialists, nutritionists, physical therapists, regular therapists, and so many other experts. When we meet as a team to discuss patients, we get input from all these disciplines, all these angles. Bringing all that knowledge together is a very powerful tool for us.

-Lantie Jorandby, Chief Medical Officer

Patients are seen by someone from our medical staff every day they’re in detox, and at least five days a week—more if needed—once they transition to residential. That’s unusual in the addiction treatment industry. Patients normally see a medical person once a week in residential care. We do it differently here. Lakeview Health doctors see patients a lot, and we know it helps them get better.

-Kevin Holbert, Physician

I spent 20 plus years in internal medicine, got sober, got interested in addiction medicine once I was in recovery, and I’ve been in this field for the last 18 years. I’m passionate about what I do because I’m  a lot like the patients. I’ve been through a lot of this stuff, and I’ve been successful at it.

-Ellen Ovson, Medical Director

Being a therapist at Lakeview Health allows me to fight substance use disorder with others who are going through the same things I did—and still do. It’s great to see patients get tangible results as they begin their journey in recovery. A nice side effect? This helps me stay sober, too, and I’ve got 11 years in.

-Phillip Warrick, Clinical Manager

I love seeing people get better. I love helping people turn their lives around. Also, I always see myself in the families of our patients. I remember how it was, how helpless and anxious I felt as the daughter of someone with substance use disorder. I try to do what I can to help these families.
