Medical inpatient psychological consultation-liaison; patient and parent coping with medical illness, hospitalization and procedures


Dr. Carrie Piazza-Waggoner, PhD, is a clinical psychologist specializing in health and pediatric psychology. Since 2006, she has been a part of the consultation-liaison service. Specifically, she works with patients and their families when they are admitted on medical inpatient floors to address a variety of presenting concerns (e.g., coping with new diagnosis, coping with hospitalization, adherence to medical regimen, pain management) for patients who have either acute or chronic health concerns. In 2013, Dr. Piazza-Waggoner became the director of this clinical service.

Dr. Piazza-Waggoner is also the training director of the O'Grady Residency in Psychology which is an American Psychological Association accredited pre-doctoral internship. Her research interests are in inpatient consultation and liaison treatment and program development as well as family functioning in families who have a child or children with chronic illnesses.
