Dr. Anthony L Rostain has the following 4 specialties
- Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
- 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.
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.

If you're lucky enough to be a patient you know he is not just a rare doctor but a rare human. After 12 years w him, he's family but that line between dr and patient always stayed clear and drawn. I don't know if I'd be alive today (rather 2 years after meeting him and employed, on a set clear track and actually content with my life all of the time) content even when I have my moments of why can't it just be "normal" for me?! He's been such a great mentor and friend there's no chance medication alone would have ever gotten me to the places I've been (up and down) but ultimately to where I am: confident in my own ability to live my life with those occasional downs or drawbacks- and know that the worst thing i can do is not go with it- step back or move forward- dr. Rostain has helped me see that the only fate worse than death is idle. When I am idle I am not learning, growing, adapting, etc. He is genuinely one of the most extraordinary people I can think of in this world and he happens to be a nurturing while effective doctor as well to boot :)
