- 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.
- Child Psychiatry
A pediatric/adolescent psychiatrist is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating mental and emotional conditions in young children and adolescents.
These specialists study psychopathological disorders and their causes in order to prevent and identify them in their patients. These disorders may be caused by biological, psychosocial, genetic, demographic, or environmental factors, a patient's history, or any combination of these factors.
Pediatric/adolescent psychiatrists treat patients through a variety of interventions including medical treatment, behavior therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy, problem solving techniques, family therapy, parent training, psychodynamic therapy, and consultation with the patient's primary care physician or school professionals.

I have been taking my son to see Dr. Kunins for the past year as we have been through a lot due to being victims of domestic violence from my x-boyfriend. Dr. Kunins stopped the dangerous medication started by the psych hospital and started a much safer more helpful one. Since then my son has been doing so much better with our relationship and he is getting the best grades that he has ever gotten since seeing Dr. Kunins. The reason that I decided to share my experience is because when I brought my son in last week for a visit, Dr. Kunins got on the floor with my son to interact with him using puppets making my son laugh which is something that I've been waiting a long time to hear. This made my heart melt as I could sense how much Dr. Kunins really cares about his patients. Dr. Kunins is a very intelligent and compassionate doctor and we are so very blessed to have found him!!!
I had taken my 7 year old son to other doctors but he never got to see the real doctor just the assistant who gave him the wrong diagnosis and medicines that caused really bad side effects. Dr. Kunins stopped those medicines and carefully explained the best way to treat my son in a way that made sense and I can understand, no big medical words. He was 100% right and my son is no longer angry and is now getting excellent grades and he is so much happier. I feel inspired to share this today because we just saw Dr. Kunins yesterday and he got on the floor to play puppets and interact with my son and he made my son laugh, something my son didn't do for a long time. This made my heart melt as I sensed how much he loves children. Dr. Kunins is one of the most intelligent and compassionate doctors to ever exist, my son and I are so blessed to have found him!!!
The doctor was able to get my son off of all the unsafe medications that he was taking which turned out that he did not need. He started a much better medicine and my son is now much happier and proud of how well he's doing in school and is now making friends. This doctor is the nicest and smartest doctor we have ever met and took the time to explain everything to us in a way that made sense and was easy to understand!!
Doctor helped me get to where I wanted to go. Im finally home!!!! Thanks Doc!
