Specialties

Dr. Paulina D Kitcher 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.

I DO NOT reccommend this doctor.

She was an hour late first of all. I got into her office and she was totally unorganized, she was taking her sweet time talking to other employees. She did not let me explain my issues at all, and then tried to take me off of meds that have been working for me.

Offensive, waste of money

I have seen many doctors and tried different therapies, and she is the only doctor to make me feel as if I personally am the problem. I gave her several chances and she even insulted my family. A supervisor observed the whole las appointment and offered me and my family nothing but an apology as a literally broke down for the third time. She has no intention and no desire to help anyone feel better about themselves. Do not give her your money, there are countless more qualified professionals that can help you.

Horible

She will not return phone calls, she will not release records to another doctor. So if you find a different doctor and request your records good luck because she won't release them and/ or return calls to the doctor who made the request. This is the most disappointing doctor I have ever scene and it really makes me upset because of her actions, my son remains unmediated.
