Specialties

Dr. Leesha M Ellis-Cox has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent 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.

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

The best in Cullman

Dr. Ellis Cox is the best psychiatrist there is in Cullman. Instead of judging you and looking at you like you're crazy, she genuinely cares about her patients. She's very knowledgeable in medicine and always asks what medicine you would like try. I've never come across such a loving and caring psychiatrist such as herself. It's very refreshing to see a Dr. That genuinely cares. She's a great doctor and I would recommend her to anyone who has been treated poorly by other psychiatrists. I just wish there were more out there like her.

I do not recommends for treating ADD/ADHD

I do not think she believed in ADHD. She was more concerned with monitoring my medicine use than helping me.
