Specialties

Dr. Melissa S Chaffee 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.

Exceptional dedicated and trustworthy

Dr. Chaffee is a true doctor. She listen carefully, get to know you as a patient and what you're going through. She works with you in understanding your thoughts, feelings, and ways on making you feel whole. She's very respectful, dedicated, trustworthy and honest. My experience with this doctor has been nothing but remarkable and amazing. I've learned so through this doctor that I am amazed of the person I am today. I manage my mental health, physical health, work full-time, raised a child and exceed at work. People don't believe me when I tell them that I suffer from a mental illness or I'm being treated. I am proud of who I am and it's because of the help, support and treatment I received from this doctor. It wasn't medicine, but a lot of commitment and hard work and she is there every step along the way. To everyone I know and anyone who may be looking for an exceptional doctor, I recommend her. To me she's the best Psychiatrist. The best!
