About

Bio

Dr. Mease is from the United States of America. He received his MD (cum laude) from the University of Missouri, School of Medicine in 1973 and completed his internship, residency and fellowship in Pediatrics at the Fitzsimons Army Medical Centre in Colorado and Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC. During his 33 years (13 of them in China) of practicing pediatrics, he has developed a special interest in children and adolescents with developmental and behavioral needs. He is an experienced Professor of pediatrics teaching medical students and young pediatricians and family medicine physicians in training. He has have held academic teaching positions at number of prominent educational institutions and published many articles in peer-reviewed journals. He has also worked in China in a variety of leadership roles from hospital Chief Medical officer to building a Department of Pediatrics. He understands the strengths and weaknesses of the current Chinese healthcare system and his Chinese medical colleagues. He is a retired COLONEL of the United States Army Medical Corps and has served his country working as a clinician, teacher, researcher, officer, hospital commander and regional healthcare leader. His educational experience and experiences as a father of 5 grown children give him a unique ability to provide parents compassionate educational counsel in dealing with all parental challenges. He is passionate about educating parents of foreign and Chinese children about their childrens’ brains. His approach is based on the latest developments in interpersonal neurobiology. Dr. Mease now limits his practice to seeing infants, children and adolescents with developmental, behavioral concerns/conditions and parents who need parenting counsel. "Developmental-behavioral pediatrics is a relatively new sub-specialty of Pediatrics which has be only recently been officially recognized in the US. Although there is great need here there are only a few fragmentary resources available to children and families in Guangzhou. The latest developments in neuroscience provide the evidence that early detection and intervention can have significant results for these children. ” Dr. Mease
