Riverside Medical Group is the premier adult medical practice in Northern New Jersey, offering quality care to young adults, parents, and grandparents. Riverside Medical has adopted the principle of providing a medical home to our patients, where our physicians go beyond their conventional role as intermittent care providers and, instead, take an active role in determining and managing our patients’ plan of care.
Behavior & Mental Health specialty areas of treatment include Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Psychosomatic Medicine, Psychotic Disorders, Women’s Mental Health/Peripartum, Psychotic Disorders, Chronically Mentally Ill, Personality Disorders, PTSD/Trauma and ADHD. We are able to provide these services exclusively to our patients with the support of an accommodating and friendly staff, as well as the most state-of-the art equipment.
Our Behavior & Mental Health provider, Bahar Hadjiesmaeiloo, MD, who is fluent in Farsi and proficient in Spanish, believes every individual comes to her with his or her unique set of experiences. With this understanding, she applies the highest standard of evidenced based medicine to a patient-centered treatment approach where patients are activate members of the treatment plan. Her philosophy is that mental health and wellness is achieved with a holistic approach to patient care.
Dr. Hadjiesmaeiloo earned her undergraduate, public health and medical school degrees from the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. She completed her internship and psychiatry residency at Jefferson University Hospitals in Phildelphia, PA. There, she was “resident of the year” for two years and served as Chief Resident during her final year. She is trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy as well as psychopharmacology.
Following her residency, Dr. Hadjiesmaeiloo served as Director of the inpatient Consultation/Liaison service at Bryn Mawr Hospital in Bryn Mawr, PA before joining our Riverside team. She is Board Certified with the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and is a member of the American Psychiatric Association, having presented at local and national conferences.
