Dr. Stephen V Streitfeld 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.
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.

Dr. Streitfeld is the worst psychiatrist I have ever been treated by. He lacks any form of human decency and compassion. He makes one feel extremely uncomfortable, his personality is wretched, and there is simply no trust. Not only have I heard his staff bad mouth him behind his back, one of the doctors who left for a better position couldn't stand him either. Can you imagine that. Let it be known that I have never had a complaint about a doctor before in my life. I have been seeing psychiatrists for over 30 years for my depression. However, this clown should not be practicing at all. I am so glad that I finally found another doctor who takes my insurance. The suffering is over.
His staff is wonderful, they have always been very nice and gone out of their way to help me. He does run late every time I go in. The dr has a odd sense of humor but he means well. I see all the reviews and I kind of chuckle, a lot of people call him a drug pusher and such. We'll people he is a psychiatrist not a psychologist !! Psychiatrists prescribe medication, psychologists talk to you! Dr Streitfeld is a psychiatrist, so make sure you know what kind of specialist your going to. He has asked me what kind of meds I would like to try but he will give me a few to compare and tell me the side effects of each, we work together to keep my mental health on track. I like to study the medication before I start it. I like to know what I'm taking and how it works. The girl at the front desk has always been great she has been T the office for over a year and is very kind to everyone. I love this office and I don't understand all the reviews other than "people" are more likely to complain. Then pay a complement. I have seen dr Streitfeld for over 6 years and I have had my issues with the prior front desk woman And the one before her. I am over all very happy.
A couple of months ago, I made an appointment with Dr. Streitfeld, and then, when it was too late to cancel without being charged, I happened to find the reviews about him on this page. I was quite concerned, asking myself what had I gotten myself into. But since it was too late to cancel without being charged a fee, I decided I would go and then if I was not happy, I would try to find someone else. I am here to tell you that my experience was nothing like what many of these reviews are saying. His office staff has always been friendly and helpful. During my initial appointment, he was kind, attentive, and thorough. He asked me many details about my mental and emotional state and it was clear that he wanted to help me; he was thoughtful and respectful of my wacky ways of seeing things. He was polite and he was dressed just fine -- casual, yet professional. He spent a great deal of time with me. I believe it was over an hour. Dr. Streitfeld takes Medicare, which had a lot to do with why I went to him. He was able to submit a test for me to help diagnose which medications my liver was able to process and that was an additional benefit. No doctor had ever done that before. I knew that the follow-up appointments would be much briefer and when I returned for a second appointment, we took care of what we needed to discuss within 15 minutes. Again, he was kind and respectful. He never rushed me -- though if I had not prepared myself for a briefer appointment and had rattled on and on, I suppose he would have encouraged me to wrap it up at some point, as he has an active practice, with other patients who could have been waiting. After my first appointment, I could only conclude that these reviews -- while there are many of them -- have been manufactured by someone with an axe to grind. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to enter multiple reviews on a site like this, and that's so unfortunate, because it's so easy to trash a doctor's reputation. I know that reading this, you have no way of knowing if I work for the doctor and if the other reviews are real, and I don't know what to say that could resolve that for you, but I had to come here and add a review, because my experience was not at all what the negative reviews have described.
