Specialties

Dr. Anna C Carrillo has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • 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.

My two girls have been seeing Dr. Carrillo for several years. She is a wonderful Doctor. She spends time with me & explains everything to me. I/we see her every 6 weeks & we travel over an hour to see her. I wouldn't even consider seeing anyone else. My girls have improved because of her.

DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILD TO THIS WOMAN! She has terrible bedside manner when she finally makes it to one of your appointments. She cancelled on my son three times and when we finally saw her she was 30 minutes late for our appointment (she never apologized) and within the first 5 minutes of the initial visit had referred to my 10 year old son as "obese"...right in front of him! Shame on you Dr Carrillo! To make matters worse I was speaking to a friend of mine about the awful experience that I had had with a child psychiatrist in Poway when she stood up in shock and said "I hope you didnt take him to Dr Carrillo!" Wow, apparently she and another one of her friends are compiling a case with the medical board regarding her and her practice. Please please please do not take your child to this person
