Specialties

Dr. David O Clayton has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • 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.

One Star

Horrendous practitioner and worst excuse of a medical doctor. I rarely write reviews, but feel obligated to the public to warn them of this unsympathetic, egotistical, money-sucker. Completely incompetent to say the least - really deserves zero stars:

Not Profesional

He is rude, arrogant, does not care about your kid at all. He does more damage than he helps.

If only I had known....

If you are the parent of an adolescent or younger child seeing a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation with Dr. Clayton.....Run the other way....Besides his arrogance and poor bedside manner, as noted above, he will take notes as you talk, on his I-pad, change his hearing aid battery during your session, charge you $700.00+, not to mention a $75.00 charge for 15 min. of phone time outside of your session (a real red flag), refer you within his practice, to keep you coming back, and if this isn't bad enough,provide you with no working diagnosis, treatment recommendations, or a written evaluation of his impressions. One has the the feeling as if "the meter is running."

Ego gets in the way!!

Best of three

I have been in this area 10 years and it took me 6 years to find Dr. Clayton. The first two were just okay but he listens to what I have to say and I feel like we make decisions about my care together .
