Dr. Chand did his General Psychiatry residency training at Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow, NY, where he served as Chief Resident during his final year. He then went on to do a fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD, where he served as Chief Resident during his final year.

Dr. Chand has been practicing as a full-time Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist at MiraCare (formerly Palos Behavioral Health Professionals) since 2017. He utilizes an evidence-based approach to his treatment, with emphasis on multi-disciplinary and family-focused treatment. He takes a mindful approach to his treatment and works with each individual’s and each family’s comfort level when it comes to psychotropic intervention. His approach to treatment is to know an individual rather than just the symptoms. A diagnosis does not determine who you are or what you can do!
