Dr Otite has helped our daughter immensely. I appreciate her approach of avoiding over medicating and her genuine care for her patients. It is so challenging to find a quality child psychiatrist that is willing to take on young patients like our daughter and I believe her intervention is saving our daughter from tumultuous teenage years that could set her adult life up negatively. We are very thankful for Dr Otite's treatment.

Dr. Otite, really takes the time to listen to your concerns and never rushes you out the door. You can tell that she cares about her patients and their parents. She coaches her parents on the expectations of behaviors, and strategies for positive and progressive improvement. Her approach is inclusive of behaviors from all aspects of her patient's life: school, after school activities, day care, therapy, etc.
