about us

the pediatric difference 

Taking your child to see a psychiatrist can be scary and overwhelming. You probably feel like you have more questions than answers. But when you come to Dayton Children’s, you can be assured that you will feel comfortable with the care provided.

Our psychiatrists are trained especially to work with kids. Just as kids bodies are still growing and they need special doctors to help heal them when something isn’t right, their minds are still developing too. They need doctors who understand the needs of a developing mind and can prescribe the right course of treatment to help when things might not be going right.

The psychiatrists at Dayton Children’s work with children with complex medical needs. They know that each child is different and therefore they spend the appropriate time needed for each child to complete a thorough evaluation in a caring and compassionate environment. They don’t just prescribe the same course of treatment for every child. Your child’s psychiatrist will take the time to listen, understand and develop a treatment plan unique for them.
