Specialties

Dr. Melissa M Bowker-Kinley 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.

  • 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.

Review fo

She is the worst person ever, she is easy to fool, it's a miracle that she has any degree! I was in her wing in the hospital, and she told my emotionally abusive mother that she was "doing a great job", and that I had a "false sense of entitlement". Neither is true. I know I've caused issues, but I have no sense of entitlement. I would give my life for the ones I love, and I've actually helped change people's lives for the better. My "entitlement" she sensed was my facade that I had built to help resist my mother's abusive comments, and it was a sense of justice, not entitlement. She has scarred me for life. Don't work with her whatever you do!
