Unfortunately we have made our way through town with different psychiatrists. But because I refused to settle for anything less than my child deserved, we found Dr. Scardina. He and his team are incredible. I am so happy with his services and diligence in creating the proper treatment to best care for my child.

I have been a patient of Dr. Scardina since I was 15 years old. I am now 33. He is truly a life saver. I live with Bipolar disorder and have been able to have my best life thanks to his care. He is very conservative with the medications he prescribes and gives them time to take effect before changing your prescriptions. He is as caring and soft spoken an individual as I have ever met and just a stand up person.

My son sees Dr. Scardina for ADHD after our general pediatrician had tried a couple classes of medications that didn't have any impact. Dr. Scardina is very kind and caring, but he has clear boundaries - as mental health professionals should. He is the most calm and focused person I've ever met. He gave us recommendations, other than just medicine, that were extremely helpful to the patient and to us, as the parents. Dr. Scardina explains things at a detailed level that I am comfortable with. He addresses the child directly, he doesn't focus on the parents as much as some pediatric physicians do. I am grateful he is our son's psychiatrist. His staff at UT is very helpful and always professional. I recommend him without reservation.
