Dr. Carolina Arevalo has the following 3 specialties
- Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.<br>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.
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.

Evil Witch Doctor, Stay Away!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Carolina Arevalo - Posted on June 13th, 2018
I am a veteran and voluntarily stayed at the VA Hospital a couple days to detox from a medicine I was coming off. I didn't think it was a big deal, but Dr. Carolina Arevalo would not let me voluntarily leave after a few days without getting an injection of something called Invega Sustenna, which is a powerful anti-psychotic for schizophrenia, something that I absolutely did not suffer from, and the medicine stays in your system for over a year. I was told it would help for Anxiety and that it had basically zero side effects. What a lie. I almost suffered a heartattack within three days of the shot and was hospitalized locally. Also, as a result of getting the injection, my testosterone production has completely shutdown, I've gained 25 lbs. so far and am now on testosterone therapy at 35. I feel like death pretty much every day I wake up now and still have about 8 months before this poison is even out of my system. I was healthy and went to the gym daily before, but now I sleep 18 hours a day, don't have the energy to get out of bed, and suffer from anhedonia, unable to experience joy or pleasure from any of the activities I used to do. My life has been completely destroyed and I am a shadow of my former self. I can't even imagine how many other veterans lives she has ruined with forced injections, but I'm guessing it's a lot. I am unable to experience any emotions now except anger and hate since the medicine blocks dopamine. I have lost the will to live and feel like my brain has been permanently damaged from what she did to me. I would give anything to go back in time and not meet this evil witch. There are a couple things you'd be better off doing than going to Dr. Carolina Arevalo for medical help. You would be better off tying a noose and hanging yourself in the garage. You would be better off putting a gun in your mouth and eating a bullet. You would even be better off covering yourself in chum from head to toe and trying to sail across the Atlantic on a raft poorly constructed of rotting whale carcasses. Just take my word and stay as far away from her as possible.
