Specialties

Dr. Kalyani Gavini 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.

A Blessing

Dr. Gavini has always been very professional, understanding and very knowledgeable. She takes the time to actually spend time on any issues that arise, making me feel like she gives her undivided care and attention. Me as a parent feels so blessed that she was referred to me for my child. I really take her thoughts, advice and any information to heart because she is so thorough and clear. I feel she really has my child's best interest at heart. She has gone above and beyond for me, especially when I constantly had forms to get filled out for work to make sure that I could get my child to each appointment. Where ever she practices, I will take my child there because I feel that strong about her expertise and genuine care.
