Edgewood Clinical Services Expands Staff to Include Two New Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists

We recognize we are filling a hole that has long been identified as a priority and significant neighborhood need.

In keeping with their dedication to providing world-class care to the Naperville community, Edgewood Clinical Services is pleased to announce the addition of two new psychiatrists to their team. Specializing in child, adolescent and adult psychiatry, Drs. Joe McNally and Peter Nichols will join the rapidly-growing behavioral health agency during the first two months of

2018.

The new physicians will be dividing their time between the North Naperville, South Naperville and Lisle office (scheduled to open in the near future). Dr. McNally begins his practice on January 8, with Dr. Nichols accepting patients starting February 12.

These additions to the Edgewood Clinical Services staff represent a momentous advancement in comprehensive mental health care in the Chicago suburbs, allowing access to needed psychiatric services for local families. The Drs. McNally and Nichols complement the existing community-focused, privately-owned mental health agency’s current three Board Certified Psychiatrists and one psychiatric Nurse Practitioner on staff.

Their arrival is in answer to the departure of former Edgewood psychiatrist Dr. Christopher Sinnappan, who leaves Edgewood for a position in California.

“After learning of Sinnappan’s decision to move to California, we were all committed to filling his position with a physician equally skilled to take over the care of his nearly 600 active patients,” said Rebecca Gadomski, Edgewood Chief Operating Officer. “Dr. Sinnappan is an incredible child and adolescent psychiatrist who has provided treatment to Naperville-area families for the last 3 and a half years. His expertise will be missed.”

With the addition of Drs. McNally and Nichols, Edgewood has not only provided for Dr. Sinnappan’s role, but have doubled the doctor talent within the office. These gifted doctors and their Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) will provide full-time psychiatric care at Edgewood, offering over 100 available clinical patient hours per week.

“They’re a very sharp, very capable psychiatric team that we’re lucky to have in our area,”
