Specialties

Dr. Benita B Anderson 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.

Great therapist!

I have nothing but positive feelings about Dr. Anderson. She is a smart, non-judgmental & professional psychiatrist. She has helped me greatly, and in turn helped others in my family deal with some difficult mental/emotional stresses. She has thorough knowledge of medications, while at the being a kind, compassionate & caring therapist. I'm so glad that I got her name from my doctor. I would highly recommend her.

INCOMPETENT QUACK.

Horrible experience. Please do your homework and find a good therapist. This woman is cold and incompetent. What did this doctor do you might ask? The answer is NOTHING.(aside from drain people of their money and waste their precious time) She sits in a chair and stares off into space. There isn't any kind of treatment and virtually no humane interaction besides whispers of "uh huh" or "yeah" What kind of treatment is that?? She is a real quack and an expensive one. With luck, she will retire soon so she won't have the chance to damage anyone else wasting their precious time and money.

I cannot say enough about the professionalism and kindness and intelligence of Dr. Benita Anderson. She has saved me many times when I was desperate to find comfort and understanding. Anyone who gives her any rating other than the full four stars is at fault for not sharing responsibility for their wellness. It is really a denial to blame a therapist for failure to find resolution to one's problems. That person just wants the professional to solve everything while he/she sits back and plays the blame game. Dr. Anderson is a wonderful person, hard working and dedicated. I am blessed to have her in my life.

One Star

There isn't any real clinical intervention or true treatment modalities employed by Benita Anderson. She is very detached and has little to nothing to say making a session with her seem like a complete waste of time and money. At the time that I saw her, she had some counter-transference reactions towards me which really would indicate that she needed to be doing some intensive psychotherapy for herself. An incapapble doctor--I strongly suggest going to a better physician. They do exist--just not with this one.
