Dr. George M Northrup has the following 2 specialties
- Forensic 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.

Before scheduling with Dr. Northrup I read his reviews. In all fairness I had to consider the type of specialty. In behavioral health it is understandable to have to wait at times. Should the need arise I am confident Dr. Northrup would take a little extra time with me. You must have trust in your psychiatrist. Dr. Northrop's bedside manner is straight forward, to the point, no sugar coating and thats exactly what I needed.
Did not find this guy's bedside manner appropriate for his profession. He seemed completely disinterested and bored and keeping his attention for more than a few minutes was a struggle. And you really only get a few minutes before you're booted out and the next patient is herded in. Reading the other glowing reviews makes me wonder if he's got drastically different personalities because I wouldn't go back.
I have been seeing Dr. Northrup for a year now. I have never felt as well taken care of. Dr. Northrup allows me to participate in my treatment and does not try to push unnecessary medications on me. I have full confidence in Dr. Northrup and the treatment and care he provides me. It is rare to find a Psychiatrist that is warm and approachable. His office manager is amazing as well! Finally I have found a doctor that ever time I leave his office, I leave with full confidence that my mental health is in great hands.
He is the only doctor who "got " my meds right after many years of seeing doctor...after doctors...He doesn't come off as a warm and carrying doctor at first, but he really does care and will work with you until you feel better .... and able to sustain that feeling of good mental health. I am thankful for his knowledge of the brain and how it functions. He uses his knowledge to help eased the cycle of depression by prescribing the right cocktail (s) - He is not a "one fit" all doctor. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for help not a counselor...remember, he can appear to be cold but that is not an issue when you work with him and he makes you feel better than you have felt in your entire life . He designers a treatment plan specifically for you... I am grateful for having him as my doctor. Give him a try and I am certain - once you experience his effectivness and the result you get from seeing him -- YOU will forget about his initial "cool breeze" he gives off on your first visit - I am blessed to have him as my doctor - He is worth it. You will not regret his care..BUT You Will Be Glad You Gave Him A Chance!
