Dr. Mohatt is Vice Chair and Director of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Vice Chair for Faculty Practice of the Weill Cornell Medicine Department of Psychiatry, an Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, and an Assistant Attending Psychiatrist at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. He also serves as co-director of Weill Cornell’s Tourette’s Association of America Center of Excellence and on the leadership team of the NYP Youth Anxiety Center

Dr. Mohatt’s clinical and research work focuses on anxiety, OCD, and tic disorders in childhood, adolescence, and emerging adulthood. He has additional interest in issues of access to care for youth with mental health issues and works closely with the Department of Pediatrics to integrate mental health care in medical settings and pediatric residency training.

Dr. Mohatt led development of the Weill Cornell Psychiatry Specialty Center.  The Weill Cornell Psychiatry Specialty Center offers expert assessment and treatment of psychiatric disorders by a multi-disciplinary team of academically-oriented clinicians in a discreet, comfortable outpatient setting.  The Specialty Center offers expertise in disorders across the lifespan and an approach that is sensitive to each individual's life context.  Services at The Specialty Center include assessment, medication management, psychotherapy, couples' counseling, family therapy, group therapy, and neuropsychological and educational testing.

Dr. Mohatt also co-founded the Weill Cornell Pediatric OCD, Anxiety and Tic Disorders Program (POCAT), a sub-specialty clinic within The Specialty Center.  POCAT provides a team-based approach to treating children and adolescents that utilizes state of the art evidence based practices, which can be applied along a continuum of intensity from regular outpatient visits through intensive outpatient treatment multiple days a week. The structure of the program allows for flexibility in treatment planning, rapid assessment in crisis situations, immediate access to your providers at all times and a high level of privacy and discretion.


Dr. Mohatt attended Stanford University as a undergraduate and received his B.A. in psychology. While at Stanford his focus was on developmental psychology at both ends of the life span. He then spent time conducting public health oriented research in Alaska Native villages prior to attending the University of Washington School of Medicine. He received his MD from UWSOM in 2000 and was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. He completed his Internship and Residency in General Psychiatry at Cambridge Hospital, part of the Harvard Medical School Department of Psychiatry in 2003.
