Specialties

Dr. Emmeline Quiason has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.

Now retired, Dr. Quiason was my doctor through my entire life, starting when I was 5 years old. Through my teens I began to have several issues and the medication she put me on helped enormously. We tried several different drugs and doses before finding the right fit.

PLease be careful.

I am writing this to prevent damage to other children. Emmeline Quiason was my Pediatric Psychiatrist from the age of 12-17 years old. My parents were uneducated about psychiatry and completely trusted her. This woman put me on so many medications throughout my treatment with her, and many at one time. I remember in 1 full day of medication at one point, I was taking 17 pills. That is INSANE. This dr is an overmedicating pill lover. She was nice, and seemed caring at the time, but now, I have a hard time remember ANY of my childhood. I was in bed by 5pm every night at the ages of 12-17. I gained over 95lbs in 3 months because of the mixture of medications she put me on. I was over 195lbs at the age of 12!!! Before I went to her, I was less than 100lbs! I was diagnosed with bipolar, and never was referred to a psychologist. I have since been to therapists, and to one psychiatrist who all concur that my diagnosis was false. I was being a rebellious teenager/pre-teen that was just needing guidance. Now I do need anti-depressants because of the damage that those psychiatric drugs have done to my brain for overdosing my body, pretty much. You, I'm sure could right this off as an angry or bitter ex-patient, but please be careful with your child's well-being. Look up the malpractice lawsuits this dr has had, and PLEASE remember to do your research, as I wish my parents had. This dr seems caring and loving, and may have good intentions, but she is a drug pusher that does not know where to stop, in my experience. I truly hope that if you are reading this, that you find the right dr for you and that they can help you in your needs for your child!

She is a great Dr. for children!

My son has been to at least 4 doctors now for his special needs and Dr. Quiason is the only one that takes her time with him and works with the school and myself in caring for him. I couldn't ask for a better doctor. The wait can be long at times but its because she spends a good amount of time with each patient. She is a very knowledgable and caring physician.
