Dr. Diller highlighted in Front Page New York Times Article

I had the recent opportunity to work closely with Alan Schwarz of the New York Times on an article he was writing to highlight the lack of reliable information for patients and doctors on the use of multiple psychiatric drugs for children.  Alan approached me and asked if he could use one of my families to highlight the dilemmas facing parents.  Matthias's mother, Joelle, kindly consented, and their story is told in the article which ran on the front page on November 15th, and can be accessed by clicking: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/15/us/one-drug-or-2-parents-see-risk-but-also-hope.html?module=Search&mabReward=relbias%3Ar%2C{%221%22%3A%22RI%3A7%22}&_r=0. There are some nice photos of the family and even one of me in the article.
