Medication Policy

Please be aware that I am not a physician and therefore not licensed to prescribe medication or offer medical/medication advice with the intention of changing any medical/medication treatment plan as prescribed by your physician. The course of our treatment plan however, frequently requires us to discuss medication. I have educated myself and have a wide exposure to many different medical/medication approaches.

THE INFORMATION I PROVIDE IS FOR "EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY."

I am in the unique position to observe as many as 30 different medication protocols of local and nationally renowned physicians. I also monitor numerous sources of “State of the Art” research from Psychopharmacology journals and newsletters. Antidotal information, treatment and medication protocol from leading institutes such as John Hopkins, Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard University, Duke University, University Of Pennsylvania and City of Hope Hospital are adapted into my sub-specialty practice. I frequent their sub-specialty conferences and in some cases have direct contact with National figures that are considered the world authorities in the Neuro-Developmental and Behavioral Disorders that are my specialty.

It is part of my responsibility and obligation as a Professional Clinical Social Worker to share this knowledge and experience with you as my client. I offer you this information and experience to educate you so that you can be informed to advocate for yourself or your child with your physician. This process enables you to be an active participant with your physician in developing a treatment plan that is proactive. The information and knowledge that I share with you should never be interpreted as a treatment plan eliminating the participation of your physician, and it is for educational purposes only.

NEVER MAKE CHANGES WITHOUT DISCUSSING IT WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN
