They have handled some of our more challenging cases and have always been readily available to consult with us by phone or email. Our confidence in their work is best demonstrated by the number of our own staff and friends’ family members who we have referred to them.”

~ David Dobkin, M.D., North Arlington Pediatrics

“As a pediatrician, and mom of three, I see the challenges that families face while raising children in today’s complicated world. Some children experience extreme adversity while others struggle with the typical stressors of trying to measure up with their peers. Dr. Dachman and his colleagues are an instrumental resource for kids and their parents by helping to teach coping mechanisms to successfully confront challenges, as well as useful strategies to bounce back from setbacks. The clinicians at Behavioral Psychology Associates work as a team with the family and child’s pediatrician to help promote the emotional health and well-being for children with a wide range of psychological needs. I feel fortunate to have had such a close working relationship for more than ten years with this very dedicated group of psychologists.”

~ Mary Jo Gawronski, D.O., Pediatric Specialists of the Northwest

“It has been my pleasure to call Dr. Dachman my friend for almost 50 years. We grew up together in the northern suburbs, playing baseball almost every day in the summer. We attended high school together and reconnected again once we started our practices. I can state, without hesitation, that Dr. Dachman is one of the most caring, committed, and compassionate caregivers that I have had the pleasure to work with. He has always been available for patient discussions, has been a resource for information pertaining to all aspects of child and adolescent psychology, and has promptly and comprehensively communicated with us regarding mutual patients. The rest of his staff has been refreshingly approachable and receptive to our requests and suggestions. When a patient requires urgent intervention, Dr. Dachman and his associates have always been able to accommodate our requests in an efficient and timely manner. Unfortunately, mental health issues have become a greater percentage of our practice than ever before. Patients with attention deficit disorders, depression, anxiety, and poor academic performance issues are seen on a daily basis. It is important to have a superior referral source to handle these issues. I recommend Behavioral Psychology Associates without hesitation.”

~ Merrick Bromberg, D.O., Ad-Park Pediatric Associates, S.C.

“Today, mental health concerns account for a large portion of what I treat in primary care pediatrics. It is vitally important to have access to knowledgeable and trusted mental health professionals with whom I can consult. Behavioral Psychology Associates has been a reliable source of high quality care for my patients since I started in practice twenty years ago. Over that time I’ve developed a collaborative relationship with several of the psychologists on staff. They have served as a valuable resource for advice in dealing with a multitude of issues from ADHD to depression and suicidality and have provided compassionate and comprehensive care to many of my patients who were in need of diagnosis, counseling and emotional support. The care I have experienced, both personally and professionally, has always demonstrated the utmost concern for my patients well-being, and I refer with confidence that my patients emotional and behavioral needs will be well taken care of.”

~ Pediatric Care Associates

“As a pediatrician, I have referred patients to Behavioral Psychology Associates for more than a decade. I rely upon their professional skills and knowledge to care for patients with anxiety, depression, social and academic issues, problems dealing with life and family transitions and difficulties coping with the strains of chronic illness. When I refer to BPA, I do so knowing that this team has not only the knowledge necessary to help patients with difficult issues, but also has the ability to connect with patients and their parents. This personal connection is crucial in helping families deal with the apprehension and fear which often accompany mental health issues. Families often feel lost when faced with such challenging problems. The psychologists at BPA caringly help families regain their footing and the capacity to address problems in a positive, more confident way. Families feel comfortable with them and trust them. I will continue to refer patients to the psychologists at BPA because I have seen the tremendous impact they have had on the lives of my patients.”
