Patient Care Bio

Dr. Yost takes a family approach to patient care. He realizes that each child and each family is unique, with individual concerns and circumstances. Dr. Yost brings over 35 years of experience, working with different children and adults in a variety of settings. He continues today, consulting to CP Rochester. As the psychologist for the Arc of Monroe County, Dr. Yost also works with adults with developmental disabilities. For families with older children, this is often helpful.

Dr. Yost is a board member and officer of the Genesee Valley Psychological Association. His evaluation skills are recognized nationally as one of four Gold Standard Neonatal Research Network evaluators, certifying quality evaluations in different research sites across the country. Dr. Yost has also trained evaluators for ongoing research in the Seychelles Islands. He is a member of the research teams for the Seychelles Child Development Study and the Neonatal Research Network.

Dr. Yost realizes that this can be a difficult time for parents; they are concerned about their child. There is much confusing and conflicting information available online, in the news and in the press. Dr. Yost takes both the care and the time to help parents obtain the information and resources to help their child grow.
