Specialties

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

All he did was prescribe medicine and send my son on his way.

This "DR" is as lazy as it gets. I sent my young college student to him. He gave him medicine, he said come back in two weeks and then referred him to someone next city over. He is had no interest in speaking to my son to talk about his stress and anxiety with school. Do not bother..he spends more time making sure he is paid then actually dealing with the patient.

RN Kris Klinzing's Son's Illness Progresses

What would you diagnose Kris Klinzing's son with?? You know him and you know what he does. And you know he doesn't know me "doctor." He just PRETENDS to know me after breaking into five of my homes, relocating 547 miles to live closer to me, poison me with lead, potassium and iron AND CONTINUES TO DO SO WHILE I'M PREGNANT. THIS IS YOUR WORK, SOOD AND I'M GOING TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE KNOWS IT WHEREVER YOU OR KRIS KLINZING GO. EVERYWHERE. It's VERY CLEAR HE HAS THE MENTAL ILLNESS. ONLY ONE KIND OF PERSON HARMS A PREGNANT WOMAN. This is YOUR DOING.

Frustrated by the non response by the doctor

Called twice and have not received a return phone call. The receptionist stated both days that he was in the office. Doctor seems to only want to manage medication and not get to the problem of what is causing my child to react the way he does to the prescribed medication or how to teach him to deal with his anxiety.
