Specialties

Dr. Jennifer M Rathbun has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

A model for medicine of exceptional intelligence and compassion

As a health professional and parent, I believe that few medical professionals are as invested in helping their patients develop a highly informed and empowered understanding of their condition. She has research and professional experience in some of the most challenging conditions that children experience from birth through and past adulthood. But primarily, I believe that she is intellectually and compassionately driven understand her patients and to help them understand themselves and their environment, helping to give them the tools to grow and be more healthy.
