More Information about Hours

I am also available for consultations on some weekdays before 8:30 am and after 6:00 pm. These visits can be an invaluable time for in-depth discussions of various issues, including school and attention problems and behavioral concerns. This is also when I schedule prenatal visits or consultations with families interested in finding out more about my practice.
