Dr. Colen’s interest in psychiatry was sparked by personal experiences watching family members struggle to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. After years of witnessing up close and personal what can happen when people struggle with medication compliance and side effects, he wanted to be able to help patients and their families.

Continuing with his education, he earned a Doctor of Osteopathy in osteopathic medicine from A.T. Still University of Health Sciences in 1994.
Dr. Colen’s most notable achievement was giving direct patient care. He was most proud of working towards the quality of care provided to the seriously mentally ill patient population. Since 2015, he has been the chief medical officer and president of the medical staff at Clyde L. Choate Mental Health and Development Center. He has also held the position of board-certified adult psychiatrist at Choate Mental Health Center-Illinois DHS since 2013.
