- 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.

My son had mental disorder. It started early in life. I feel blessed that we found Dr T. He treats my child who happens to have a disorder , not a disorder that has my child. Dr T helped us to find right medications. It is great to see a doctor who is so careful with med and takes care to adjust dosages as the child's life changes. My son learned a lot about his condition and self care from Dr T. My son progressed from someone who needed a therapeutic school to a young man entering college 2 years before his peers.
Thank you. I am a strong believer in informing and educating my clients. It is vital that we look at the WHOLE PERSON and his/her circumstances and not just the disorder. I am always glad to hear about clients doing well and even excelling.
My family had a decidedly different experience with Dr. T than did the previous reviewer. We found Dr. T to be very careful, honest physician. We had been to several psychiatrists and psychologists before seeing Dr. T, who took the time to ask the right questions and was the first physician to appreciate that something truly was wrong with my son. (The other psychiatrists very quickly said that nothing was wrong with our son other than teenage angst.) It took a year to make the diagnosis, but that's the way it can be in psychiatry. We have had a very rough time. Again, that's the nature of psychiatric illness. I don't blame Dr. T and am instead very grateful to him.
Thank you very much for the kind words and your patience with the process. I realize it can be a very difficult and painful time when a family member becomes ill. I am glad that I was able to help.
