Portsmouth, NH |
cont: Each time we visited I asked her for proactive tips and tools to implement at home to help my kid with her issues--as she offered up nothing. Her credentials and years of practice are impressive- her motivation and actual treatment of my kid as an individual patient were suboptimal; sadly not that of an organized, caring provider.

After careful research I discovered she is perhaps the top child psychiatrist on the Seacoast and my visits confirmed this. She is empathetic and smart. Though she knows all the ins and outs of medication I never felt she was pushing it as a first option.
