Anne Pylkas, MD

Internal Medicine/Addiction Medicine Fellowship

Bloomington

I am an internal medicine physician with further training in addiction medicine. I grew up in Minnesota and attended both undergraduate and medical school at the University of Minnesota. I completed my residency and fellowship training at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis. I am board certified in Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine. I am passionate about caring for patients with addictions. Often, addiction is seen as a moral failing; however, advances in brain imaging, behavioral research and neuroscience have clearly shown that it is a complex brain disease. Thanks to these advances, effective pharmacological and psycho-social treatments are available.
