Specialties

Dr. Caroline C Smythe 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.

Other options beside medication

Dr. Smythe has helped my children taper off their ADHD medications. She determined my youngest was gluten sensitive and both boys had several vitamin deficiencies. They are now better then ever. She is really good with children.

I submitted a review a few days ago but apparently did not click the overall rating, and they reported it as 3 stars. As you will see if you look at the details of that review, they are all 5 stars. This is a 5-star doctor, and the last thing I want to do is lower her score. The rating service does not seem to provide a way to correct an error, so this is my second try.

Dr. Smythe is super committed to good health. She was determined to get the right diagnosis, which I really appreciated. Once she had the diagnosis she was able to come up with a treatment plan that was incredibly simple, and it worked. And I only saw her 5 times. I recommend her highly.

Finally!

I have been struggling for some time with a variety of symptoms that just seemed all over the map - depression, anxiety, low energy, and some physical things (like my digestion and itching with no sign of a rash). Dr Smythe wanted to explore the bio-chemical possibilities in my 'treatment'. I put treatment in quotes, because one of the first thing she did was give me some of the power by suggesting dietary changes. Then she also suggested cutting back on my meds a little bit. So many things started to shift early on. I feel soooo much better, and am doing things that I thought were history. Even the dark (really dark) circles under my eyes are mostly gone. Who would have predicted that? I do best when I can understand something intellectually, so I love that she actually educates me about what is going on!
