Specialties

Dr. Angela K Dawson has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

I had struggled a lot in school with keeping up my grades and staying interested in my schoolwork and I had always thought it was just because I wasn't smart enough. I went to Dr. Dawson my freshmen year for anxiety and through the course of my second session she asked if I had trouble focusing in school. I never thought my problem with school was actually a treatable illness. She put me on Vyvanse to treat my ADHD and I never would have thought it would change my life so much. I now am on honor roll and making straight A's and I discovered that a lot of my anxiety was coming from my inability to complete tasks and stay focused. I am so thankful for Dr. Dawson and she has been so supportive of me, I always look forward to seeing her and she always has candy! :)

Diagnosed me with Bipolar

I was misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder, even though it was later determined that I merely had Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and before she diagnosed me with this she treated me fir depression; 3 years and she was way off. For the past 2 years life has been great under another physician who diagnosed me correctly right away,

I felt that Dr. Dawson was kind knowagable and listened closely to what I was saying. I've had very few (VERY few) docters really do that and then try to find ways to help me like she has.

Wonderful Caring Physician

I was a complete train wreck before coming under the care of Dr. Angela Dawson. I understand she has moved away which has saddened me greatly. She was a gift from God at a most critical time in my life for which I am tremendously grateful.
