Dr. Neil Nedley

Medical Director

Dr. Neil Nedley is the founder and medical director of the Nedley Depression and Anxiety Recovery Programs.  Dr. Nedley is an award-winning practicing physician who also serves as President of Weimar Institute, a higher education college that houses the world-famous NEWSTART program and the residential and outpatient Depression and Anxiety Recovery Program.   He has presented and published numerous scientific studies in the medical/scientific literature and is well known as a public speaker and teacher throughout the world.  He is the author of Proof Positive, Depression—the Way Out, The Lost Art of Thinking, and Optimize Your Brain. Additionally, Dr. Nedley is a board-certified Internal Medicine specialist with an emphasis on the difficult-to-diagnose patient, gastroenterology, and mental health. He enjoys hiking in nature with his family, piloting his own aircraft, snow skiing, and listening to sacred and classical music.  Nothing is as enjoyable to Dr. Nedley, however, as helping people from the depths of depression and anxiety to the pinnacle of success and fulfillment.

Joshua Fleming

Residential Program Physician

Dr. Joshua Fleming has been interested in health and wellness from a young age. Half-way through his graduate degree in exercise science, he realized he could have a much greater impact on the wellbeing of society as a physician. Throughout medical school and during his residency in Family Medicine, he saw, more than ever before, the desperate need for more effective treatment strategies addressing mental health disorders and chronic lifestyle-related diseases. For this reason, he is completing his fellowship in anxiety, depression, and lifestyle medicine with Dr. Nedley while also completing the requirements for board certification as a Lifestyle Medicine Intensivist. When he is not working, Dr. Fleming enjoys running, hiking, and pretty much anything in the great outdoors. His greatest joys are studying the Bible with those who have never experienced its beauty, and spending quality time with his beautiful wife, Stephanie.
