  • 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.

Bad Dr

So I seen a resident at Chestnut Ridge and he said his "superviser" has to go through everything and approve it so when he came back he brought Dr.Altaha with him and I had to explain everything all over again to her. She just nodding her head the whole time her body language and her eyes told two different stories. Not compassionate and then tried to refer me to the day hospital so she wouldn't have to deal with me!!!!!!!! all would not recommend her at all
