Dr. Padow is a board-certified adult psychiatrist who uses a compassionate, collaborative approach to the treatment of patients with a range of psychiatric conditions. She focuses on building strong therapeutic alliances with her patients in order to create safe spaces to work together toward wellness.
Dr. Padow’s practice employs a mix of psychotherapy and medication management, tailoring treatment to each patient’s specific needs and preferences. She primarily works with adults dealing with depression, anxiety, and difficulty coping with life changes. Occasionally, Dr. Padow may believe that additional therapy would be beneficial and will recommend a therapist also join the care team to ensure the best outcome.
Dr. Padow received her undergraduate degree from Barnard College, where she studied behavioral neuroscience. She completed her medical training at Tufts University School of Medicine, followed by a psychiatric residency at Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center. During residency, she gained extensive clinical experience in inpatient, outpatient, and emergency room settings, evaluating and treating patients from diverse socioeconomic situations and with a range of symptoms. During her final year of residency, she received additional training through New York Psychoanalytic Institute’s fellowship program, and she served as Chief Resident of the Consultation-Liaison team, where she honed her clinical skills and supervised junior residents on the service.
