Child and Adolescent Mental Health Assessments:

Emotional and behavioral issues are among the most common reason for a visit to the doctor.  They impact every aspect of a child’s life. For this reason we actively screen for behavioral issues from a young age at each physical.

In addition, we schedule consultations for our established patients to discuss issues such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, or behavioral problems.  These visits are scheduled in longer time slots to more thoroughly assess a patient than can be done at the routine physical or during a sick visit.

We are experienced in diagnosing and managing behavioral health issues and try, with psychologists in the community, to provide medical treatment when necessary to avoid the long wait to make an appointment with a psychiatrist.

Dr. Miller has completed the CAPPC program to gain more in depth training on current methods for diagnosing and treating a variety of mental health issues. When counseling is recommended, we strive to provide you with names of providers that best suit your families’ needs.
