Dr. Kristin S Ahrens has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

How I View This Doctor

She does not seem to listen to her patients.She invests too much time prescribing medicines.Dr.Ahrens gives pills for everything.If you have something important you would like to discuss with her,she will write you a prescription,rather than becoming attentive to the underlying problem.She seems to do this an awful lot,maybe,to her own convenience.If you have an emergency she will postpone any needed time with you until much later.I took my son out of her quote,unquote"care."
