Dr. Lynda L Carlisle has the following 3 specialties
- Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
- 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.
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.

My son was a patient at CSTC and was having major problems with his behavior. Dr Carlisle was patient, tactful, caring and one of the most wonderful human beings I've ever met in the medical field. Not only did she find the correct diagnosis and minimal medication but she worked with him and helped him understand - and did the same for me when I had a thousand and one questions. He was gone for 18 months and it was difficult for me but knowing that he was surrounded by caring people like Dr Carlisle made it tolerable. He had the best care available - what a great bunch of people work at CSTC and also at Firwood School.
Dr. Lee is the best doctor ever--she gave us our son back. God bless you, Dr. Lee
