Specialties

Dr. Joan Dickson 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.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life.

When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.

Dr Dickson is the kind of Dr. that more should be like, she is caring for her patients and not in it for the money.We can talk to her with ease and also have a good laugh when we need one, the Glendive hospital is out of their minds not to give her hospital privleges, but then they would have to eat crow then wouldn't they, get rid of the ceo and let the good Drs in.

I have been seeing Dr Dickson for a few years and I have to say she is not only very professional but very personable. I can't say much for most Dr's and having worked in the medical field for sometime I find Dr Dickson very refreshing.
