Dr. Colleen S Friddell 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.

Wonderful Dr

She takes time to talk to my child as well as me about how he has been feeling. She wants to know from him - asks him questions - asks me questions. We have been working with her for several years and I've never had a bad experience and have even recommended her to several friends. Her office may not be fancy - but that's not what I'm there for. Her office manager Dawn is fantastic. I can always email or call her with questions and she is so friendly wanting to know what is up with our family.

So helpful! and knowledgeable

We have had our sons, BOTH with an ASD with Dr. Friddell for years now and could not be more pleased. She is always trying to help them improve their quality of life. She listens and keeps up to date on the latest medications and treatments. She has many children herself, so she "gets it".

This may not be who you are looking for!!! to treat your mental illness. The stress of being her patient inhibits recovery in my opinion.

I treated with this physician for several months hoping her office professionalism and bed side manner would improve. I am thankful it did not or I would have never found my current physician. ALL THIS PHYSICIAN CARES ABOUT IS MONEY. YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A *** $**** SIGN. I feel she takes advantage of the mentally ill.Her office unless changed without my knowledge appears to be furnished with garage sale type furniture that is not in my opinion comfy or attractive. The not so friendly staff sits behind a glass window that is set in a white scuffed dingy wall with a clip board for you to sign in. Reading material in out dated magazines is provided. Smells kind of dirty or did the days I arrived for appointments. I feel this physician over medicated with name brand, NEW, AND EXPENSIVE MEDICATIONS. She did offer samples when available but for the most part one can conclude the meds perscribed generally provide her office an incentive. One will not typically receive scripts for old school meds that work well with little to side effects and come in generics. I would not be surprised if over 50% of her practice has paid a missed appt. fee. Due to the poor customer service provided by staff and for the pure fact that is EASY cash money.
