Specialties

Dr. Denise A Ingham has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • 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.

She is the best

Unfortunately, I have had depression most of my life (since about age 7). I have visited with many psychiatrists over the years, and truly Dr. Ingham is the most friendly, easy to talk with, accommodating and accurate psychiatrist I have ever seen.

One Star

I saw this doctor for some time a couple years ago. I liked her at first but she told me up front she isn't a therapist and she didn't want to know about my issues. I was on a couple different meds which still weren't helping plus I had major side effects and gaining weight and was falling asleep while driving and still depressed. She just flat out told me she couldn't help me anymore and didn't have any more suggestions. I cancelled my appt and stopped seeing her andhad to wean myself off mymeds. She never called to follow up with me to see if I was ok. I was almost suicidal at this point. Thankfully I am still alive but for me she didn't help me. She left me high and dry.
