Catholic Addiction Medicine positions itself uniquely by providing proper evaluation, treatment, and ongoing support to aid in one’s recovery, while integrating religion to find the root cause of these addictive behaviors and ultimately, find healing through a strong relationship with Christ.

Craig Turczynski, Ph.D.
Reproductive Physiologist

Dr. Craig Turczynski is an expert in the field of reproductive physiology, having formerly run an IVF lab. He left IVF and now helps couples who desire to achieve pregnancy while under the guidance of the woman's physician. He will teach and coach the couple on use of the Billings Ovulation Method® or review other charting data and help them identify the peak period of fertility. When couples are experiencing infertility and one or both of them have an endocrine or metabolic issue, he will become a member of the health care team to expedite successful treatment. Having run an andrology laboratory, he is also able to provide feedback on previous semen analysis testing and the need for additional evaluation of the man. Dr. Turczynski is especially passionate about helping couples who are considering IVF or have used IVF in the past.

Matthew Estrade, MA, MBA
Gerontologist

Matthew coaches care partners (caregivers) of persons living with Alzheimer’s or related dementias in strategies to make the best of a challenging situation. Appointments are typically for care partners so that they can speak frankly, however, they may include the person living with dementia if that is preferred. He also facilitates care partner support groups online to help them find fellowship and brainstorm solutions together. Support groups are also offered for persons living with dementia in the early stages. To Matthew, it is a privilege partnering with families to see what can be done to live life to its fullest.
