Specialties

Dr. Jefferson B Prince has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • 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.

  • 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.

Unprofessional

She's a biased ignorant person, who believes her opinion is infallible and that any suggestions or opposing beliefs are wrong. Started yelling and ridiculing me while having a panic attack claiming "I was faking it" . Very unprofessional.

Prince of Rudeness

Waited exactly 1 hour in the waiting room. No apology or acknowledgment from Mr. Prince or his office management. In fact, when we inquired about the wait, Mr. Prince insinuated that we were lucky to have an appointment and we shouldn't be bothered by an hour long wait. Yes, Mr. Prince, our time is just as valuable as yours. To make matters worse, Mr. Prince made a bizarre (and possibly construed as off-color) comment about our primary doctors first name. Previous sessions with Mr. Prince felt rushed. They were basically him writing a prescription and sweeping us out the door.
