Glen R. Elliott, PhD, MD, Chief Psychiatrist and Medical Director

Glen ElliottDr. Elliott is a child and adolescent psychiatrist with over 30 years of working with children and adolescents who have severe psychiatric and behavioral disturbances that might respond to appropriate medications. In 2006, he authored Medicating Young Minds, which embodies his philosophy that “the decision to use or not to use medications is a serious one with both immediate and long-term implications, so parents need to be able to work closely with an expert to decide what is best for their child.” Beyond medications, he is an expert in diagnosing and treating ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and the related behavioral problems that often complicate lives of those with ASD, and anxiety and depression. Deciding when medications are not apt to help is at least as important as selecting the best-possible medication when one is needed.
