A first-generation Canadian whose family emigrated from Greece, Dr. Panagiota Korenis earned an honors degree in Biology from Queen’s University in Ontario. She completed her doctorate in medicine at St. George’s Medical School in Grenada, followed by residencies and fellowships at Bronx Lebanon Hospital and New York University, among others.
In addition to her private practice, Dr. Korenis is Director, Residency Training: Bronx Care Health System and an Associate Professor of Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. So she understands the challenges her busy telemedicine patients experience managing work, personal commitments, and their own physical and mental wellbeing.
Committed to fitness and nutrition, Dr. Korenis provides coaching and wellness training for other physicians. She’s treated patients living with severe mental illness and suicidal tendencies, though her Skypiatrist practice focuses on patients coping with burnout, depression, anxiety, and trauma. “I’ve had great success with people whose symptoms have resisted treatment, those who’ve tried other regimens in the past that haven’t worked.”
She chose psychiatry because it integrates her passion for neuroscience with human development. “With psychiatry, you can apply a holistic approach and take everything into account, from biology and genetics to people’s cultural and spiritual backgrounds.”
Dr. Korenis lives in Westchester with her husband, a doctor of radiology. “My husband is a local New Yorker with Puerto Rican and Trinidadian roots. So, together we have a great, mixed background which we’re committed to sharing with our young sons,” she says, adding, “My biggest passion is playing soccer with my kids, helping them learn to ride a bike or catch a baseball. Family workout time is essential.”Close
