Finding Black doctors in Pittsburgh is like finding a needle in a haystack. Or so it may seem.

  • Cameron’s Counseling & Consulting – Eletta Cameron 412.403.8196, she has been a major help for my family & I
    both joint & individual sessions.

  • I’m a black child psychiatrist. You should list me but note that I am close to retirement so am taking a limited number of patients ( planning to retired sometime within the next 5 years). People can still call because I do have openings now and them. My bio:
    Claire M. Cohen, M.D,
    4701 Baptist Road.
    Pittsburgh, PA 15227

    There is another Black child psychiatrist, Barbara Johnson, M.D. she is not practicing right now. She is working for an insurance company. She is about ten years younger than I am. I am trying to convince her to open a small practice. I will ask her if she wants to be listed.
