Specialties

Dr. Todd Estroff has the following 3 specialties

  • Pain Management

    A pain management specialist is a physician with advanced knowledge and training in diagnosing and treating pain. These doctors do not come from one particular discipline, but rather use their respective backgrounds to contribute a varied approach to the field of pain management.
    These specialists use their different skills and training in pain management to treat pain stemming from different causes - whether it's neuropathic pain or headache, or the result of injury, a surgical procedure, cancer or another illness.
    Pain management specialists are primarily trained as anesthesiologists, physiatrists, interventional radiologists, neurologists, osteopaths, or primary care physicians.

  • 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.

  • 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.

excellent doctor

Have been seeing Dr. Estroff for many years. I am alive thanks to this man and that is not hyperbole; he helped me get through a very serious addiction and has always been there for me. This doctor is very serious about helping people with addiction, pain, and psychiatric issues. He is not a "pill pusher" and tries to do the safest, best, most medically appropriate thing for each patient. This sometimes means telling people "no" or that they need to reduce the dosage of medication they are on. This can cause patients to get extremely upset and I believe this is where some of the negative comments come from. Few doctors are willing to deal with pain and addiction patients. We are a highly difficult group of patients who often have multiple disorders and this man not only cares deeply but has given much of his life to helping those who other doctors are unwilling to treat. Other doctors would simply not bother. On top of his caring and sincere nature, he is also an excellent and highly skilled doctor. And he's always available to his patients. He answers his phone directly. I thought the comment calling his "staff" rude was rather amusing as he has no staff, Dr. Estroff himself is the one who answers the phone. Don't let his blunt and direct way of speaking give you the wrong impression; Dr. Estroff is an incredible physician.

There is no talking with this horrid man. He asks you if you drink, you tell him the truth, that you do Not. He says "All alcoholics Deny it." Then your spouse says that you do not drink. He says "All spouses Enable it." Then he writes Alcohol Abuse in your medical chart. Then your insurance company and your doctors and everyone get this medical record. The 1 good review that he got below must have been written by him, There is No Other Explanation.
