Their expertise in childhood development and the nervous system make them an excellent resource for parents of children with autism, cerebral palsy, mental development issues or learning disabilities.

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.

HORRIBLE! This Dr is a disgrace to the profession. He did nothing to help whatsoever. He sat at his computer the entire time, and was rude and did not want to answer any of my questions. He told me that he would prefer that I take my foster child to another office for care and that I should wait until I adopted her to take her to a specialist. He snapped at my foster daughter and made her cry. I will not be going back.
Upon ongoing visits with This physician for my son who is diagnosed with Autism I found him to be very judemental over fathers. Let me explain.I am in the midst of a volatile divorce and custody situatation. I found him to be very judgemental with unwitted humor and sarcasm and negative innuendos towards me in office vists. Ive tried to have some private conversations but he refuses.All professionals should be non judgemental and biased during family crisis situations. Ive been met with as others have stated cunningness and sarcastic negativity and senseless condensending ill humor. There are always two sides of a story and again it is within the best intrest of the children not the marriage situation that is in hand. I would prefer another Dr. but under court order he remains.. I hope he would understand not to judge as he will be judged!This pertains to his Syracuse Ny practice..
