ERIN AMATO, MD
Adult, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist. Medical Director.
Dr. Erin Amato, MD, was raised in Billings, Montana and attended medical school at the University of Nevada School of Medicine. Upon graduation from medical school, Dr. Amato was awarded the Lillian Orchow Prize for Outstanding Student in Psychiatry and was designated as an AMA Foundation Rock Sleyster Scholar.
She completed her internship and residency in General Psychiatry at Long Island Jewish Medical Center-Zucker Hillside Hospital in Glen Oaks, New York. She then pursued fellowship training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry through the NSLIJHS-Albert Einstein College of Medicine program in New Hyde Park, New York. She served as the chief fellow during her second year of the fellowship and was awarded the Clinical Excellence Award upon completion of her program.
Dr. Amato believes that early intervention is critical when people are affected by emotional, behavioral, cognitive and learning disorders. Mental health should be looked at in the context of an integrated mind-body approach. Especially in cases of children and adolescents, early diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric disorders is essential in promoting healthy development.
