We recognize that dealing with a GI condition can be challenging for children, families, and caregivers. Dr. Brad Jerson is a pediatric psychologist within our department who collaborates to help families adjust to the psychosocial aspects of chronic and acute illness, while promoting positive health behaviors to optimize quality of life. With specialized training in problems that frequently co-occur with medical conditions such as stress, anxiety, depression, and pain, he can work with you, your family, and your medical provider to discuss how evidence-based treatment options could be integrated into your medical plan.
