What you’re hearing all around you may be causing you to have increased anxiety. Dr. Rothbort at the Center for Healthy Minds is here to support you. The office is currently open and Dr. Rothbort is seeing patients in person and virtually. We have a separate private waiting room so patients do not need to wait in a room with other patients. In addition, you can get trusted virtual psychiatric care from the safety and comfort of your home without risking being exposed to the coronavirus. Patients who prefer telemedicine are welcome to have their appointments via Zoom, Facetime, Whats App, Skype or phone. Please do not come to the office in person if you are feeling physically ill. Instead, please let our office know and you can reschedule your appointment or have it via telemedicine. With health concerns dominating the news, we know how important it is to have a trusted doctor you can access from the safety and security of your home. We are proud to be that resource for you and your family.
Our mission is to provide the highest quality psychiatric and psychological care. We work collaboratively by drawing on the combined experience and expertise of our excellent treatment team to achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients. Our goal is to treat symptoms to enable our patients to thrive in their day to day lives and progress optimally in their development.

All of our offices have state of the art soundproofing. In addition to privacy, our office location is easy to find, has abundant free parking and is wheelchair accessible.
