Dr. David Leader 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.

Dr. David Leader

Dr. Leader is a fantastic psychiatrist. He has provided my psychiatric care for about eight or nine years now. He is very knowledgeable, caring, thorough, and helpful. I can't imagine any way he could be a better psychiatrist. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of psychiatric care.
