Dr. Leopold Bolona

Board Certified Adult & Child Psychiatrist

Founder and Medical Director

WELCOME

Founded by Dr. Leopold Bolona, Short Hills Psychiatric Wellness Center prides itself on providing comprehensive and compassionate treatment. Our experienced professionals treat both children and adults in a peaceful and inclusive environment.  

 

We understand that seeking treatment can be difficult. Our aim is to make the process as comfortable as possible, and to spend the time getting to know you and your unique situation.

SERVICES

Psychiatric Evaluation

The initial appointment is a comprehensive psychiatric interview and the first step in the treatment process. Your provider will gain a full social, emotional, educational, medical and family history, in order to formulate a diagnosis and treatment plan. When appropriate, your clinician will consult with your other medial providers, family members and school personnel to be as comprehensive as possible.

Medication Management

Medication is often a necessary part of the treatment plan, and will sometimes be recommended in conjunction with other therapies. Your provider will work with you to determine the best options for you, and discuss risks and benefits of medications. When taking medication for mental health issues, it is important to be followed regularly by a trained psychopharmacologist. Often medications need to be adjusted in order to find the best regime.

Medication Consultation

Often patients are prescribed psychiatric medications by their general practitioners, or other healthcare providers. While medical doctors are trained to recognize mental illness, they do not have updated specialized  education and expertise as do psychiatrists, to most correctly diagnose and treat mental illnesses. Our clinicans have extensive training in psychopharmacology and are up to date with the newest and most innovated treatments available.

Quotient ADHD System

 The Quotient™ ADHD System offers medical professionals an office-based capability to conduct rapid, precise and objective patient assessments that can serve as a baseline from which to establish and monitor the course of treatment. It is an especially useful tool for measuring the effectiveness of certain drugs prescribed to treat ADD.

Professional Speaking Engagements

Dr. Leopold Bolona is an active member of the American Medical Association, American Psychiatric Association, and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and has received several awards such as America's Top Psychiatrist and NJ Family Magazine's Top Child Psychiatrist.

Ask About Spravato

Spravato nasal spray is a different kind of medication taken with an oral antidepressant for adults with treatment-resistant depression – a first in decades approved by the FDA.

Ask About TMS Therapy

TMS is a depression treatment that is non-invasive and doesn’t involve the use of any drugs. In TMS therapy, the prefrontal cortex of your brain is stimulated with a magnetic field. This helps brain cells function and regulate your mood more effectively. It gently stimulates the areas of the brain that are under-active with depression.

you'll get what you've always gotten."
