  • Forensic Psychiatry
  • 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.

Worst shrink ever!!

This so called Dr. Refused to increase Rx dosages citing 'study that said it usually doesn't help.' He told me I had treatment resistant depression and a 'sorry, I can't help.' I was so depressed and coupled with a physical disability I rarely sat sat up, walked, etc. As a result, I can no longer tolerate even sitting up for more than a couple hours before I have to lie down, the pain is so bad. Since it is a small town, he was my only option. I went out of town a couple times but I was to depressed to leave the house. So I went back. Since he has left, My dosage has been increased with amazing results. Too bad I'm so physically weak to enjoy it. He ruined my physical health and I suffered needlessly for years. Since he quit, I am now getting the proper medication and feel great. I have been treated for my mental illness for 24 years and I know what does and doesn't work on me. I am also a trained medical professional. He refused to listen. He shouldn't be allowed to practice.
