Describing his approach to patient care, Dr. Halabi said, "I work in partnership with young people and their families to recognize the biological, psychological, and social factors contributing to their concerns.
 
"My approach to treatment planning is personalized and relies on early collaboration with families, schools, healthcare providers, and other systems involved in each child's care," he said.
