About the Mount Sinai Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders Treatment Center
The Mount Sinai Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders Treatment Center uses evidence-based science to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) across the lifespan. We specialize in treating patients of all ages suffering from all ranges of severity - from mild to severe, as well as treatment-resistant forms of OCD. We offer expert consulations, comprehensive evaluations, and ongoing treatment. The long-term goal of the Mount Sinai Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders Treatment Center is to discover the causes of OCD, so that new and better treatments can be developed.
Our program director and Chair of the Department of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai, Wayne K. Goodman, MD, is a world-renowned expert in OCD. In 1986, Dr. Goodman developed the Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS), founded the OCD Foundation, and started one of the country’s first specialty programs for patients with OCD at Yale.
Twenty-five years later, the Y-BOCS remains the gold standard for assessing OCD symptoms. The OCD Foundation has become the global advocacy group now known as the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF). Dr. Goodman has launched the Mount Sinai Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders Treatment Center in his hometown of New York City.
