Dr. Brophy specializes in Neuroscience, Emergency Medicine and Addiction Medicine. In the emergency department, he deals with the acute aspects of addiction such as overdose, acute withdrawal, and the social impact of substance abuse. While treating addiction in the outpatient setting, he helps bring hope and stability to those struggling with addiction, and is able to witness and assist as people rebuild their lives. He uses his background in neuroscience to educate our youth, and has built numerous addiction prevention programs that have been implemented in schools across western, PA.
Dr. Brophy is also one of very few physicians in the region to be Board Certified in Addiction Medicine as recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialities (ABMS). This designation has been awarded to a small number of physicians nationwide. He has also received numerous other awards for his efforts to educate the public and reduce the stigma associated with addiction, including a Proclamation from Allegheny County for the work he performed through the Opiate Reform Initiative, a 501(c)3 non-profit launched by Dr. Brophy in 2016. His knowledge on the topics, combined with his dedication to help people, and his empathy for the struggles of addiction are truly remarkable.
