A behavioral scientist is available daily to assist the physicians with counseling for emotional, personal, marital and family issues. She also acts as a liaison between the patients and community agencies when referrals are necessary. A close relationship has always been maintained with community agencies including but not limited to Womansplace, MonYough Community Services, McKeesport High School ELECT Program, and the Allegheny County Health Department.
