Dr. Cynthia Belt has the following 3 specialties
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
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.
- Child Psychiatry
A pediatric/adolescent psychiatrist is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating mental and emotional conditions in young children and adolescents.
These specialists study psychopathological disorders and their causes in order to prevent and identify them in their patients. These disorders may be caused by biological, psychosocial, genetic, demographic, or environmental factors, a patient's history, or any combination of these factors.
Pediatric/adolescent psychiatrists treat patients through a variety of interventions including medical treatment, behavior therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy, problem solving techniques, family therapy, parent training, psychodynamic therapy, and consultation with the patient's primary care physician or school professionals.

Dr. Belt has gone above and beyond when it comes to taking care of her patients. I have had to call her emergency contact line and she has responded within an hour. She has helped me find medicines that will be most effective when it comes to dealing with my situation and on top of all wants to make sure that I would call if the medicine she perscribed was not doing a good enough job. She is very talented and very kind, she has helped me turn my life around.
I find Dr. Cynthia Belt extremely helpful. I like the fact that she is young, which makes it easier for me to talk to her. She's got a calm demeanor, actually listens to your "problems", then offers great insight/ideas on how to go about dealing with them. Never had a problem with prescribed medications from Dr. Belt. Anyone looking for a Psychiatrist, I would definitely recommend Dr. Belt.
I am writing about my experience with Dr. Belt and my 17 year old daughter who was having issues with depression. Dr. Belt did not want to talk to her much, she would not return the calls that the emergency room placed to her after an incident with my daughter and she would not return my calls after that same experience. I would not recommend her to anyone.
