How do I know which doctor is BEST for my child?

Parents often question which doctor they should choose to help manage their child's Anxiety, OCD, ADHD, and an interesting and often mis-diagnosed disorder called PANDAS (a disorder where children develop sudden onset OCD behaviors and tics from STREP). They have been trying to cope by reading books, online blogs, and getting advice from their friends and loved ones. When they feel that their child is not getting better, they determine that they need to take things to the next level and seek professional help. How do families know where to go and which is doctor is BEST for them?

I encourage families to check out Stefanie Weiss at ASK STEFANIE.  The mother of three children 10, 8 and 5 helps families select the appropriate psychologist, psychiatrist, therapist, or pediatrician based on a families needs. Every child’s personality is different, therefore they respond differently to different people. Stefanie interviews each doctor personally, so she can help parents choose who would be the best fit for their child. It is hard enough to get a child to open up emotionally to a stranger, especially one they don’t relate to. Stefanie makes this process so much easier! She is a true hand-holder, guiding parents through the entire process. Parents anxieties are alleviated the moment they walk in the door.

Stefanie is warm, charismatic, and very easy to relate to. She has relationships with many doctors all over New York City and Long Island. She truly takes her time with each family, helping navigate the process as well as giving parents great tips and advice on how to handle friends, relatives, and teachers. Her concierge service is truly one of a kind! One day when you need it, you will be glad that you have her number in your back pocket!
