Dr. Carlos A Borge has the following 2 specialties
- Adolescent Medicine
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.
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.

I've been a patient for15 years. Dr. Borge dramatically improved my life. Periodically, at different times of my life in the past, I spent a couple of years working with one therapist or another in Saraasota and world-class cities up North. Each time the therapist got me through the crisis at hand, but did't help long term. Dr. Borge, on the contrary, chaged my outlook, emotional reactions, peacefulness and acceptance of my life, so life is not only bearable, but content. I have the utmost confidence and respect for Dr. Borge. He closely monitors progtess of medications and changes so I'm feeling my best and the meds are suitable for me. I can't thank him enough and don't know what I would do without him.
Dr Borge is very nice and professional in person, his office is nice, but I was misdiagnosed with a mental condition when I had a physical condition and put on multiple medications I did not need which disabled me for years. This happened to my friend with him as well. I think it's a psychiatry problem moreso than an individual prescriber problem.
He is very persuasive... He is a bit drug happy. He had me on toxic levels of lithium and never bothered to check my blood. I ended up going to my GP because I felt so sick. My GP did a blood test and with the results told me to stop the medication immediately as my levels were so high. Dr. Borge kept saying it was all in my head, all of my physical symptoms. He just wanted to give me more medication and more medication... I am very glad I stopped seeing him. Though he can be kind and supportive.... Something about his methods are just not right. All he does is prescribe one medication after another. He doesn't even taper meds down. And he ramps up the dosages very quickly. If you want to get and stay healthy. Stay away. He is a danger to his patients.
