Specialties

Dr. Cheryl Booker-Carter has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Unprofessional

It confuses me how she is a mental heath professional when she obviously acts so insensitive to her patients emotional and behavioral issues. She uses words that a psych should never use and talks more than she listens. I have left appointments feeling completely berated.

Negative Experience

If I could give zero stars, I would. Now I have never actually meant this doctor but the facility that she works at, is horrible. I informed them that my current doctor closed their practice and that I would need a new doctor and be able to be given a prescription at my first visit. I provided them with my old doctors records which I informed them were not readable. I think it is ridiculous to ask a patient to drive all the way there for a eval when it is very clear what they are seeking. Furthermore, I think it is insane that it takes a week and half for them to provide paperwork to a doctor to review that is not even accepting new patients. Shouldn't the practice know which doctors are accepting new patients and which ones are not. I would not go to any doctors that belong to the practice that Dr. Cheryl Booker-Carter. This place does not care about patients or their needs. Furthermore, there bedside manner is horrible.
