Dr. Faye Brownfield has the following 2 specialties
- Child Psychiatry
A pediatric/adolescent psychiatrist is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating mental and emotional conditions in young children and adolescents.
These specialists study psychopathological disorders and their causes in order to prevent and identify them in their patients. These disorders may be caused by biological, psychosocial, genetic, demographic, or environmental factors, a patient's history, or any combination of these factors.
Pediatric/adolescent psychiatrists treat patients through a variety of interventions including medical treatment, behavior therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy, problem solving techniques, family therapy, parent training, psychodynamic therapy, and consultation with the patient's primary care physician or school professionals.
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.

After just one appointment for my child with Dr. Brownfield, I terminated all services with her. Something came up during the time of my child's next scheduled appointment, and I informed her that we would need to reschedule, if possible.. This sent her into a bit of a frenzy. When she found out that both parents would not be able to make some of the appointment times she gave me, she proceeded to to try to lecture me (We both work different schedules). While I was respectful and polite to this lady the entire time I spoke to her, she was very rude and demeaning to me over the and in person. She continued to try to press her point about me rescheduling and how inconvenient that was for her.. My child could make the appointment, just both parents could not be there, she was just being unmanageable.. I finally had enough and terminated services with her on the spot. I can only be nice to a rude person for so long before I basically tell them to take a hike. Unprofessional - this lady flat out told my child in our first appointment that things were not going to get better, no exaggeration there. In short, Dr. Brownfield is a very rude and unprofessional person, this is my opinion. When I showed up to her house and alerted her that I was there (only a few minutes early) she seemed annoyed and told me I would have to wait outside of where she lives, which is off a dark road back in the canyon - no place to wait but on the dark road back in the canyon. Hope this helps anyone needing some information on Dr. Brownfield.
