Dr. Melanie J Brace 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.

  • 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.

she does not deserve any stars

The staff are great but Dr. Brace is terrible. she did not want me in the room with my daughter and she made me feel as if I'm a bad parent. she was making exscuses for my daughter and telling me that I should not punish my daughter because she had ad/hd and we should ignore the bad and reward the good. I changed my daughter doctor to another one and I am so glad I did. so if you want a Dr. that wants to speak to your child alone and does not want you in the room then she is great oh and my daughter had lost 2 pounds and the stupid docter freaked out.
