Specialties

Dr. Jennifer L Haak has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • 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.

  • 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.

Wish I could give Zero Stars

Well all the others have said it she doesn't dress appropriately, she does not like when you oppose her, she is very condescending, a pill pusher for sure without trying to have outside testing done. I also have had her on numerous occasions say the rest of the family is the problem except non of the other children needed to be placed in a special program nor do they have an extensive background with behavior concerns as my one child. She has also accused us of singling him out due to race and my other children are also mixed race. Most recently she changed his medicine dosage without consulting me first. If you're child is facing Baker Victory Day Treatment it's best you run and run far.

Not at all happy.

Dr. Haak and her staff were arrogant and condescending to us as well as to other professionals involved in our child's care. Refused to allow other professionals input or to attend appointments with us. If you go to BVS for Day Treatment you are TRAPPED with this doctor until you leave the school. Once she knew we were unhappy with her care and desired another doctor (we did not leave our prior doctor until the school district placed our child at BVS so we are not doctor hoppers) she REFUSED to address behavior issues.

Just Don't do it to yourself!

Baker Victory Day treatment, arrogant and rude, seems like she never knows whats going on with other services, can't even remember her own advice and scripts she wrote month to month, write them done honey it isn't that hard, and read your own notes! I certainly don't recommend. She may make a good dog walker but not a good child psychiatrist.

Brutal

First (and last) encounter was brutal. She is very ignorant and condescending. Does not listen. Rude. Felt like she was trying to discredit everything we said. We have seen many doctors and providers for my son. This was the absolute worse experience we have had in 18 years!!

One Star

Very arrogant, thinks that her way is always right. Does not listen, does not like to be questioned. Has been seeing my grandson for about 1 yr. ,all she does is play with his meds. My GS is getting worse, so her answer is to lock him up. No Dr should give a young child any meds., without a full back ground check to see if something in the home may be causing his aggression. His mother will not listen to anyone but this so called CP, I feel this is child abuse, & I don't feel that I have any recourse. Our GS is with us after school & most weekend, our input has never been asked for or excepted when offered, so how could he be diagnosed properly? I wish we could find another Child Psychological. worse. His mother will not listen to anyone but this so call CP. I feel this is child abuse. I don't understand how she can give drugs to a child without doing a back ground check to find the cause of his behavior. She is nothing but a pill pusher. If pills don't work lock the child up. She is so dead wrong about her diagnose . I don't know what else to do about my GS, I'm so worry they are going to put him away, my daughter will not listen to anybody but this so called CP.
