Child Psychiatry of Dallas


We know everyone is aware of the latest developments surrounding Coronavirus COVID19 pandemic and its arrival here in North Texas. We must emphasize that it is extremely important to take proactive steps to prevent any exposure.

We would like to inform you of the policies we are proactively putting in place at our practice for the extended care of our patients.

WE ARE CHANGING ALL IN PERSON APPOINTMENTS TO TELE-MEDICINE APPOINTMENTS. Your appointment date and time will remain the same but you will join the online appointment via a link and will wait in a virtual waiting room until Dr Joshi is ready to see you. We will do all appointments via telemed until it is safe to see patients in person again.


What is a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist?

The child and adolescent psychiatrist is a Doctor of Medicine or Doctor of Osteopathy who specializes in the diagnosis and, if indicated, the treatment of disorders of thinking, feeling and/or behavior affecting children, adolescents, and their families. A child and adolescent psychiatrist offers families the advantages of a medical education, the medical traditions of professional ethics, and medical responsibility for providing comprehensive care. The child and adolescent psychiatrist uses a knowledge of biological, psychological, and social factors in working with patients.
