November's Featured Physician is
Dr. David Trobaugh is a child and adolescent psychiatrist, and has joined our talented team of physicians at Memorial Hospital. For the past 6 years, Dr. Trobaugh has enjoyed practicing in an inpatient setting. When offered the choice to work in a more community-based outpatient setting he happily made the move. “Outpatient treatment allows more of an opportunity to be involved in the patients’ therapy,” says Dr. Trobaugh.
As a child and adolescent psychiatrist, Dr. Trobaugh is able to assess, diagnose, and treat behavioral disorders effecting children, adolescents, and their families. He has the opportunity to intervene at the first sign of a problem. He admits there is an immense amount of satisfaction in being able to have such an impact in the lives of others.

Dr. Trobaugh has been practicing medicine for over 39 years. However, admittedly, it took years of study with much encouragement from his mother before finally deciding to go into medicine. Originally from Coweta, Oklahoma, Dr. Trobaugh attended Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Following his undergraduate degree, he received his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine in 1974 from the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. From 1974-1975 he participated in a rotating internship at Steven’s Park Hospital, in Dallas, Texas. Shortly thereafter, he returned to Tahlequah as a family physician. In May of 1980, he started working at the Bill Willis Community Mental Health Center as the Medical Clinic Director. It was after working in the mental health setting that Dr. Trobaugh decided to go into psychiatry.
In 1987, Dr. Trobaugh completed a General Psychiatry Residency at the Michigan Osteopathic Medical Center where he began working in the field of adult psychiatry. “I just enjoy helping people,” says Dr. Trobaugh, “to hopefully let them enjoy life again.” While at the Eastern State Hospital in Vinita, OK, he chose to work with children part time. It wasn’t long before he was serving more children than adults.
When asked his goals, Dr. Trobaugh stated he would like to get established and settled in Stilwell. Recently, his youngest daughter began college in Joplin, Missouri. He and his wife of 17 years, Jeanie, have 1 child.
Dr. Trobaugh’s hobbies include fishing, wood and stone carving.
