Specialties

Dr. Carol E Harkrader has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Treating chronic depression is not easy. Yet, through expert assessment, followed by thoughtful and careful effort to find the right medications and doses that worked for me, Dr. Harkrader has helped me immensely. When I first visited Dr. Harkrader, I was very depressed. For three years running now (which is a long period given my history with other practitioners), I have been doing very well. I'm happy and content. She is the right doctor for me.

I would recommend Dr. Harkrader to anyone dealing with anxiety and depression. From her you learn that visits and medication alone won't make you feel better. It's like going on a diet: It won't work if you just watch an exercise video and take weight loss pills. You've got to take an active role in getting in shape.
