Office staff is horrible. You can't get through to anyone directly in the office and they don't return calls in a timely manner. They screwed up scheduling several times and caused an unacceptable delay in my daughter's treatment. My recommendation, go elsewhere.

Dr. Amin is the best Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist I have ever met. She's very intelligent and knowledgable while warm and kind. She takes the time to explain her goals for my treatment plan and reasons for meds. I'm so grateful to have been referred to her almost two years ago.
