Specialties

Dr. Donna M Woods 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.

Wanting to throw meds our way and not listen to underlying issues to help resolve them. Just pop a pill to resolve a growing developing child instead of help him and others understand him and his needs. If your looking for a pill pusher see her. Never go back

Dr Woods is a wonder, she explains everything clearly in terms that you can understand. She is very sympathetic. She follows up when you call or if you start a new medication. I would recommender her to anyone in need.

gives children antidepressants without accurate conseridration of alternatives. Take's a quick fix "medicate your kid approach" rather then solving the problem by "safer" means. I'm pretty sure an eight year old child does not need to be on high dose physchiatric drugs.

decent, and very good at her job

Although she may not be extreemly talkitive and keeps to her self, I know she is good at what she's doing, she put up with multipul visits each for a med change and was concerned when I told her the side effects I was having. I could just be a lucky one but I I don't understand the low low rating
