Specialties

Dr. Dorothy A Okeefe 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.

I am never going back

I had gone for a few years and tried many meds on my son. Every visit with Dr. O'Keefe she had me in tears and even once my ex husband got up and left. My last apt she told me no meds will fix how I am a bad parent. Wow. She also has no personality, she hardly smiles, she is rude, I could keep going. I had stayed with her for so long cause I hate change bit now that my son is getting worse I have to have someone take this more serious. Not just tell me he needs a better environment. You can even look at her and tell she is not friendly.

One Star

Both myself and my younger sister have tried to go to Dr. O'Keefe, and both of us had awful experiences. I went in with chronic depression, trying to find a medication that worked. She took me off my antidepressants and began to treat me for OCD- something that I never before had been diagnosed with and have not been diagnosed with since. She did not listen, and was never friendly. With my sister it was worse. When Dr. O'Keefe learned that my mom, who has Anxiety disorder, adopted my sister, she said "Anxious parents raise anxious kids," and went on to tell my mom (in front of my preteen sister) that she should not have adopted my sister. It's safe to say we left and never looked back. Dr. O'Keefe is horribly cold, unprofessional, and rude. I would 100% NOT recommend.

Would not recommend

I would not recommend Dr. O' Keefe to anyone. She has left such a bad impression on me that I will not bring my child to anyone associated with her practice. She doesn't have the personality or compassion to work effectively with children and their families. She seems cold, unfriendly, and rigid. No consideration for the individual needs of each child; each is treated in a cookie cutter fashion. Perhaps she used to care more, but is now burned out and needs to retire.
