Specialties

Dr. Karen M Tie 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.

  • Neurology

Compassion? Not so much

Went to see this doctor for some anxiety. She was caustic and very cold. She told me that she would make it so that another doctor would call me and help me with a medication regiment, only to call me later on in the evening and leave a voicemail to tell me if my medication she had prescribed was an issue I could just continue to come back to her particular office. She couldn't be bothered to effectively listen to what I was struggling with. Don't waste your time.
