    I would recommend Dr. Lovelace to everyone. When we met Dr. Lovelace my son had been sick for almost a year, he had seen several specialists, and my son did not have a diagnosis. Dr. Lovelace arranged special testing and we soon discovered that my 12 year old had a complicated anxiety disorder. Dr. Lovelace worked with my son and our FAMILY! I felt that our family was an important part of the treatment team. My son is doing very well now. Dr. Lovelace was a blessing in our lives!

    My son saw Dr Lovelace in Virginia for several years. He is very upfront, professional, and always had his best interest at heart. We were both very sad to see him go but wish him the very best at his new practice. I would recommend Dr Lovelace to anyone who needs his services

    Dr. Lovelace is an excellent Child Psychiatrist. He genuinely cares about his patients AND their families. He goes above and beyond to spend quality time with his patients and the parents. He uses medication sparingly and his goal is to have your child on as few as possible. The absolute best child psychiatrist we have seen.

    Dr. Lovelace has been treating my children for the past 4 years. They have come a long way clinically and emotionally in that time. They are comfortable talking with this provider and respect his recommendations. He know how to connect with children very well, and at the same time maintaining very positive open communication with parents. I am confident that if I need to be in touch with Dr. Lovelace for an urgent matter, he calls back as soon as he can. I highly recommend this provider!!
