  • 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.

Dr. Albert may be a better doctor now, but he was my pediatric psychiatrist when I was a child and developed panic attacks. He got me addicted to klonapin by prescribing very high doses of the medicine to control my panic attacks. I kept going to therapy but he only wanted to talk about sex, my breasts, and how hot his wife was when she was young. Or he would stare out the window. When my father passed away (I was only 16) I had no more insurance or money and Dr. Albert told me he would keep writing my scripts. Eventually however when I told him I wanted to quit the medicine (I was not seeing him very often at this point) he condescendingly told me that his rates were now over $400 per session and he no longer took insurance. He said this with great cruelty and smugness, or anyway that is what I perceived. This doctor was more than a waste of my time, he has hugely damaged my life. Left with no parents and no support, and no money, I had to fight my way free of a benzo addiction thanks to this sexually inappropriate and fully ineffectual doctor.
