Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kocher "Taking great care of Children and Adolescents who have issues surrounding mental health, school, transitions and coping is a great passion of mine. I practice in a solo private practice that is very hands on and patient centered. I work tirelessly with families, so that their children are able to be very successful in their lives. I believe a good psychiatrist is a great physician first. Therefore I am very methodical in how I do my medical work up to make sure the best care is delivered."

Dr. Kocher was really so professional and explained everything to us. I have referred her already to two friends and they had the same great experience.
