Provider Bio

Malkan Pilipovic, ARNP, is an advanced registered nurse practitioner with psychiatric experience in all age groups from 6 years old and up. Before deciding to become a nurse, Malkan began his healthcare career at Drake University earning a Bachelors in Health Sciences and Biochemistry. While there, he became a CNA at Lutheran Hospital in the inpatient psychiatric units and found his love for mental health. He went to Allen College afterwards to obtain his Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then his Master of Science in Nursing to become a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. By the end of his schooling, he had 6 years of inpatient psychiatric experience working as a CNA and as a registered nurse. Malkan works with a wide range of disorders and has developed a listening ear to patients who may have side effects, who may be worried about their ability to live a normal life, and who want more than just another medication to take.

Malkan is a strong proponent of therapy, healthy diet, and exercise. He believes medication should help people more easily pursue the big three of a happy life: work, love, and play. Outside of his practice, Malkan enjoys spending time with family and friends, tinkering with technology, video gaming, and hiking. Malkan enjoys reading and listening to Carlat Psychiatry, Dr. David Puder’s Psychotherapy podcast, and Freakonomics.
