Specialties

Dr. Craig P Bushong 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.

  • 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.

I was considering taking my child to see Dr. Bushong but after reading the reviews no way! How does this guy even have a practice here in the valley?

Arrogant and Rude

We were seeing Dr. Bushong for our DD daughter for her anxiety and mood swings. He told her to "shut up" twice during her last appointment! He was focused on the medication he wanted to give her! We left his office with our daughter sobbing. I will never go back subject our daughter to that kind of treatment again!

Do not recommend. Flippant. We had a very bad experience with him and would not recommend at all, ever. Incorrect diagnosis set our son back from getting needed attention.

He was highly recommended and has exceeded expectations!

Dr. Bushong has been a vital part of my teen's therapy. We were referred to him by others in the field that called him "the best." He has never jumped toward medications, and has had a caring focus on psychotherapy. Every kid is different, but mine has really been able to open up with Dr. Bushong's manner of therapy, and my child has made dramatic improvements. We are very blessed to have him for a doctor.

I give Dr. B. credit with saving my life!! He is very professional, very caring. A fabulous doctor! I am very surprised by the negative comments posted above. I'm guessing from a disgruntled patient...?!
