Specialties

Dr. Linda L Carpenter 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

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Dr. Carpenter is an excellent doctor. We consulted with her recently regarding my husband's struggle with depression and she was far superior to the "top" doctors we consulted with in Boston and NYC. She spent a tremendous amount of time with us and we felt she was the first doctor in the past 10 years who actually had insight into my husband's condition. Her office assistants were polite and we had no trouble getting an appointment and didn't wait at all to see her when we arrived. We considered going to an expert at the Mayo Clinic, but truly Dr. Carpenter is at the top of her game and we wouldn't consider trying another doctor anywhere in the country.

Linda L Carpenter, MD

Since Dr. Carpenter does not have any private practice, she does not have the type of office staff and scheduling procedures that most doctors do. She would not have any reason to follow up with a patient, since she does not follow any individual patients beyond their initial consultation appointments, and those appointments are requested by the treating/referring physicians. Therefore, I must conclude that readers should be suspicious of the opinions and ratings posted on this website about her.
