Specialties

Dr. Nicole Poliquin has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Don't know why she didn't give me certain information

I went to this doctor about ten years ago for depression issues. Basically the only thing she did was prescribe me SSRIs and the anti-psychotic Zyprexa (she should not have done this, according to another doctor that I go to now). The SSRIs caused havoc with my life, for one, they screwed up my libido. After leaving this doctor, I quit all psych meds cold turkey and started taking 5-HTP as recommended by my new doctor. I have never felt better in my life. Haven't been depressed for years since I started taking 5-HTP and eating more vegetables (oh and another thing--Dr. Poliquin never talked about, at all, the importance of a good diet in treating depression. Let me tell you, a good diet really helps. I've quit soft drinks and this seems to help a LOT). Anyway, Dr. Poliquin never told me about 5-HTP or anything else--she only talked about SSRIs. I hope this helps anyone who is struggling with this doctor.

Have been going to this Dr. for almost 2 years and have been continually disappointed and annoyed but hated the idea of repeating entire medical history with someone else. Dr. Poliquin never remembers her patients (or even glances at medical files beforehand). She spends each appt. as if you are a new patient, reading through medical file for 20 min. and asking the same questions at each appointment "So, what are you taking?" "what was your diagnosis?" Very unprofessional and a huge time waster! Also, Dr. Poliquin is not as knowledgeable as she should be about psychiatric meds, their side effects, interactions and withdrawal effects. Leaves it to the patient to research the meds and then argues with and denies the facts found.
