Dr. Edger is both a General Psychiatrist and a Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist. He emphasizes working with families in his practice. Family support and involvement is a powerful tool to help the patient improve.
He also focuses on getting patients diagnosed and treated early in childhood. This helps avoid long and painful delays in treatment.
He utilizes both psychotherapy and medication in my treatment approach.
