Specialties

Dr. Alex V Smirnoff has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Review of an unethical doctor

This man is a horrible doctor. He is lazy and unethical. He never addressed my issues properly. He just took my money and left me far, far worse off than if I had never gone to him. It is the worst experience of my life. I could have died from his terrible "treatment".

Dr. Smirnoff Held My Child Without Any Reason

Dr. Smirnoff held my child in the psychiatric ward, with no explanation, no reason, and he still can't explain why he did it.Beware of Dr. Smirnoff.

a doctor that truly cares!

i have been seeing dr. smirnoff for almost 3 years, i have a 14 year autistic child and at the time we began with dr. smirnoff our son had gone through many doctors and hospital stays and was on so many different medications over the past 11 yrs it just got so crazy and my husband and i were feeling so hopeless, and helpless. dr. smirnoff listened to us, our cries on how we were losing our son to all these behaviors that were controlling our son not allowing him to even attend school. he helped us find the right medication for him and gave us his cell number, something no other doctor and we had many did for us, telling us to call anytime. we saw him every 2 to 3 weeks for over 2 years, and now our son is doing so well we see him once a month. i can't say enough good things about dr. smirnoff, he truly cares for the patient and the family of that patient.
