He specialized in treating children with social, emotional and behavioral issues, and conditions including depression, anxiety, ADHD and autism.
He sent a letter to his patients saying: “A most terrible thing has happened with me in the past week while I was overseas, which I will need to manage urgently. I will have to cease practice immediately indefinitely.
“For patients and families, I am so sorry for leaving you so suddenly. I can honestly state that these issues have been totally separate from work and I have always provided you and your children with the best possible, safe and appropriate care.”
