Dr. Denise T Curry has the following 3 specialties
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
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.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

A very competent and caring doctor I would refer her without hesitationl
Best psychiatrist I've had yet but sadly left due to insurance switching. She was so good about explaining medication scientifically and never talked down to me. She'd spend extra time talking about additional things that did not even fall under the appointment - she's just helpful overall. If you get the chance, she's great and I highly recommend her.
Dr. Curry is one of the nicest, most thorough psychiatrists I have known. I have suffered from panic disorders most of my adult life and she is very knowledgeable about this condition, along with the accompanying depressions. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
It's been awhile since I visited this site, so please pardon my delayed response. Thank you very much for your kind assessment and recommendation---it is very much appreciated. It is a pleasure to work with you, as well. Kind regards, Dr. Curry
The first Dr who really seemed to care. Knowledgeable, caring, compassionate, and respectful. Truly a lifesaver for my partner. I can't thank her enough for everything she did for us!
Please pardon the delayed response here, I hadn't realized you had written. It is very kind of you to have written, and humbling to hear words from the heart. We do go into this profession hoping to help people when they are in need, and it is gratifying to hear that I have in some measure been able to do so for your partner and you. Hoping things continue to go well. Kind regards, Dr. Curry
