We are the pediatricians of mental health. In medicine, doctors often refer to the “gold standard” which is the optimal treatment modality for a specific symptom. At the Gold Center, we aspire to provide a comprehensive plan to support you and your family. We don’t believe in “throwing the kitchen sink” at a problem. Our consultations seek to understand the nature of your child’s difficulties and craft a treatment plan that is not redundant and does not over diagnose your child or adolescent. You will have a team leader who takes a bird’s eye view of all the services that your child currently utilizes from tutors to coaches to therapists to doctors. We seek to coordinate and curate these services for your child and family.
It truly takes a “village” to raise a whole person. At the Gold Center, we strive get to know your village. We take a multi faceted approach where we assess both the mind and the brain. We evaluate the genetics, the medical and the psychological. We assess a patient’s life and relationships. For children and teenagers, we will speak to teachers, coaches, and tutors to obtain an understanding of a child’s challenges in the classroom, on the sports field and online. We also make home visits and provide in home behavioral plans and therapy when appropriate.
