Adolescent and Pediatric Psychiatry
We at Bayside Pediatrics recognize that parents are usually the first to notice that their child is struggling with emotions or behavior and the decision to seek psychiatric help can be difficult. Pediatricians are the first line of defense for child/adolescent mental health issues. However, many children need the expertise of an experienced child/adolescent psychiatrist. As pediatricians, we are often asked to give the same amount of time to a simple ear infection as to a complicated behavioral concern.
Bayside Pediatrics offers a co-location of psychiatry services to allow for a soft hand off of a patient who is in need of specialized mental health services.
