Bruce M. Lovelace IV, M.D.
After spending 14 years training and working in Virginia and abroad, Dr. Lovelace returned to his native Louisiana in early 2016. He is board certified in child and adolescent psychiatry as well as adult psychiatry, though he has focused his practice almost exclusively on children and adolescents since completing his adult training in 2006.
Dr. Lovelace graduated from LSU medical school in 2002 before moving to Charlottesville, VA, where he completed his residency and fellowship at the University of Virginia. He was recognized for his dedication to teaching medical students and interns during his residency and was later chosen to be the chief fellow during his child training.
Before settling into a practice, Dr. Lovelace indulged his love for traveling by moving to Wellington, New Zealand with his wife and two young children. While there he worked with patients from a variety of cultures including Maori and Pacific Islanders. Following his year overseas, he returned to Virginia to join the staff at the Naval Medical Center - Portsmouth where he trained resident physicians for the US navy for 6 years. He was in charge of all consultations to child psychiatry while at NMCP and therefore dealt with the complex cases which presented to the pediatrics ward and the emergency room. He has experience treating the full spectrum of child mental illness but particularly enjoys working with the parents of young children who are struggling with behavioral issues.
