Dr. Christopher S Burky 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.

  • 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.

Full of HIMSELF!

I only gave one star because it wouldnt let me give 0! Dr. Burkey is not about what's best for his patients, all he cares about is the all mighty $$. His communication with parents is horrible!! He speaks down to parents as if they have no idea what they're talking about because he has a degree and they don't! He doesn't take time to explain anything, he rushed through his appointments. I wouldn't bring a dog to this man, let alone a child with mental health issues that needs help! It's psychiatrist like Christopher Burky that cause parents to give up on the mental health system!!
