Dr. Tia Konzer
As an osteopathic physician, I practice a comprehensive approach to medicine and believe strongly in the importance of treating the mind, body, and spirit to achieve maximum wellness. The sacred relationship between the physician and patient can be just as important as the medicine or therapy provided. Thus, I provide longer comprehensive appointments and am accessible to patients to ensure that their concerns are heard and they feel understood. Focusing on the whole person, I work with patients to develop individualized treatment plans to address various aspects of their lives including sleep, nutrition and exercise, relationship strategies, coping skills, etc.
I received my undergraduate degree from Albion College and then went to medical school at Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. I completed an Osteopathic Internship, a General Psychiatry Residency, and a Child/Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship through Michigan State University. I am board certified in General Psychiatry and Child/Adolescent Psychiatry.
While at Michigan State, I received additional specialization in Sports Psychiatry. I have worked with elite athletes of all levels including high schools and universities, Charlotte Hornets, NASCAR, USA Olympic teams, and SwimMAC Carolina. Currently the only Sports Psychiatrist in the Charlotte area, I provide athletes medication management and therapy.

What Dr. Konzer’s Patients are Saying…
Dr. Konzer takes the time to connect with her patients. Instead of just scrolling through some standard questions at each appointment, she takes the time to check in on how life is progressing. Kids connect with and respect her for how she treats them. Dr. Konzer works with both patient and the parents. How wonderful to have a doctor that takes the time to listen, but also obviously cares for the families she works with!
