About Dr. Sullivan
Dr. Patrick ‘Rocky’ Sullivan, a board-certified emergency medicine physician, is an attending Emergency Room physician with Global Neurosciences Institute. He specializes in treating neurologic emergencies, with particular interest in acute ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes, as well as acute and chronic headaches. Dr. Sullivan provides services in the Neurologic Emergency Department at Crozer-Chester Medical Center which is led by Global Neurosciences Institute.
Dr. Sullivan earned his undergraduate studies at Rutgers University and completed medical school at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey – School of Osteopathic Medicine. He is a board member of the American Society of Ketamine Physicians and has presented his “New Paradigm for the Treatment of Alcoholism” at the Ketamine Research Institute’s international conference.
Bridging the gap between the physical and psychological aspects of brain science to heal the whole person is the driving focus of Dr. Sullivan’s work. He understands the persistent burden of living with stroke or neuromuscular disease, the pain and fatigue of chronic migraines, fibromyalgia and insomnia, and the complex interplay with mood disorders and addiction. In 2016, Dr. Sullivan founded a program that takes a pioneering, neuroscience-forward approach to treatment of resistant depression, PTSD, OCD, chronic headaches and alcohol use disorder. He has developed some of the country’s first treatment programs of their kind, including accelerated transcranial magnetic stimulation, combined theta burst stimulation with ketamine infusion therapy, and pharmacotherapy plus ketamine infusions for addiction. He is the only U.S. east-coast provider utilizing ketamine-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD, as well as the only certified provider of The Sinclair Method in New Jersey.
