Bradley Hospital's Pediatric Referral Consultation (PERC) Clinic provides psychiatric consultation and implements care plans for children with various psychiatric diagnoses and complex clinical presentations. The PERC Clinic accepts referrals from pediatricians and family practitioners.
Once a child is assessed, treatment is initiated and the patient is stabilized, the referring physician is responsible for the ongoing monitoring of care. The PERC clinic psychiatrist is available for follow up consultation and sees the child in the clinic should the need arise. The psychiatrist also works with established therapists in the community to create an ongoing treatment plan, or assists the primary care physician and family to obtain appropriate outpatient follow up for the child.
Abiola Alao, MD is the director of the PERC Clinic at Newport Hospital. She is a board
certified child and adolescent psychiatrist. She did her adult psychiatry residency at Maimonides Medical Center in New York and her child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System in New York.
