Dr Gross' Background

What are the goals of the initial consultation appointment? It is firm belief that every individual is entitled to a clear understanding of the nature of the problem(s) that they present at the time of the consultation. If possible, the diagnosis or diagnoses will be discussed and a treatment plan will be formulated. At times, specialized testing may be indicated to aid in formulating the diagnosis. Testing may include extensive blood tests, psychological testing, brain imaging, and electroencephalography.

The diagnostic formulation enables the development of a treatment plan. Effective treatment often requires the involvement of pharmacotherapy (medication) and psychotherapy. Dr. Gross is pleased to be affiliated with a number of skilled therapists providing a coordinated team approach.
