Specialties

Dr. Marilyn K Hammond 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

Great Doctor

I've been seeing Dr Hammond for over ten years and I think she is the best. It is always easy to get an appointment. I never feel rushed. She is pleasant and easy to talk with and seemed to know exactly where I'm coming from. I would recommend her to anyone. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give her an 11! I have seen three other phsyciatrists over the years and she is by far the best.
