Dr. Jannifer G Herron has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
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.

If this is the same Dr. Herron that worked at San Antonio State Hospital a few years back, she had me committed for bipolar disorder even though I was never once diagnosed. While committed every time I asked her when I could go home she laughed at me. Nothing on my medical record even indicates that I have bipolar.
It's true that you may have to wait a while past your appointment time before you go in to the office, but it's becausee she is not one of the clock-watching doctors who kicks you out as soon as your time is done regardless of where you are in the session. She cares about her patients and gives each the time that they need in order to serve them best in their treatment. She has been so flexible and helpful to me, I really don't know where I would be without her. This woman is amazing.
We had a poor experience with another psychiatrist in Austin before switching to Dr Herron. She shows more empathy and compassion than I've ever experienced with a physician. She listens intently, knows our story, and I never feel rushed. If I had to complain about anything sometimes the wait is long which is a tradeoff I'll happily take to see her.
Dr Herron is excellent. She relates well to children, tweens, and teens. The ONLY problem is that we sometimes have to wait for an excessive amount of time. However, the reason is probably that she takes as much time as needed. I never feel like she's rushing us and is always willing to answer all our questions.
