Tina Drossos, PhD

Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience Director, Health and Wellness Program for the Kovler Diabetes Center

Tina Drossos, PhD, specializes in pediatric psychology, providing support and guidance for children and their families facing long-term health challenges. Dr. Drossos works to address the emotional and psychological impact of chronic illnesses on young patients, helping them cope with stress, anxiety and depression, as well as improve adherence to a medical regimen.

Through a variety of therapeutic techniques, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, Dr. Drossos empowers children to better manage their health and live fulfilling lives, while also providing families with the tools and resources they need to support their children's ongoing care. Along with an established interdisciplinary team, we develop tailored treatment plans that include each element of care from mental health to clinical programs designed to support and treat children/adolescents and families with chronic illnesses.

Dr. Drossos also uses research to further improve care for pediatric patients needing chronic care, such as diabetes, cancer and median arcuate ligament syndrome (MALS). She is evaluating methods to enhance the quality of life for children and adolescence with chronic illnesses. Her research has been published in several peer-reviewed journals, including, Pediatrics, Primary Care Diabetes, Frontiers in Psychology, Journal of Pediatric Psychology and more.

Why does this provider not have a star rating?

Our goal is to provide our patients and visitors with correct and useful information. We only post provider satisfaction information from clinic surveys when they are returned from patients.

This provider has not had surveys returned that meet the necessary sample size

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
