“I am really excited to bring The Coleman Institute’s unique services to the people of southern Indiana and the surrounding states,” said The Coleman Institute’s founder, Dr. Peter Coleman. “Unfortunately, the illness of addiction is very prevalent in this area. I hope we can bring some help and relief to many individuals and families over the coming months and years.”
The Indiana branch of The Coleman Institute will be led by Joseph Koenigsmark, DO, MBA, or “Dr. K” as he is better known by his patients. Dr. Koenigsmark is a Board Certified Family Physician trained in Osteopathic Medicine from the Midwestern University of Medicine in Chicago. He has held a variety of medical positions over the last 25 years, including a solo medical practice as well as Medical Examiner for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Dr. K also earned an MBA, allowing him a better understanding of insurance programs and government medical programs. More recently, Dr. Koenigsmark provided medical evaluations to the disabled veterans of Kentuckiana at the Louisville VA Medical Center. This experience, especially, gave him direct experience treating addictions induced by pyschological and physical pain.
“I am proud to partner with Dr. Coleman and his team. This is a wonderful opportunity to not only open and develop The Coleman Institute in Louisville and the surrounding cities, but offer innovative and, most importantly, effective addiction treatment services to the area,” Dr. Koenisgsmark said. “As a long time resident and physician in Kentucky, I understand the extent of the addiction problem in the area and I look forward to being able to bring these much needed services to the community.”
