Liwei Hua, MD, PhD

Integrated Behavioral Health, Pediatrics

Practices In: South Bend
Patients Seen: Children and Adolescents

I see patients as a whole with­in their fam­i­ly and com­mu­ni­ty sys­tems. An assess­ment of how a patient is func­tion­ing at home, at school, with friends, and in extracur­ric­u­lar activ­i­ties is an impor­tant part of my eval­u­a­tion and helps me deter­mine what kind of evi­dence-based treat­ment could be help­ful, includ­ing med­ica­tion (if indi­cat­ed). I work col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly with my patients and their parents/​guardians, as well as the pedi­a­tri­cians who refer them, and strive to pro­mote resilience and self-reliance.

Dr. Hua sees patients who are active­ly being treat­ed by a Pedi­a­tri­cian at The South Bend Clin­ic. If you are inter­est­ed in a refer­ral to Dr. Hua, please con­tact your physician.
