Specialties

Dr. Peta J Clarkson 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.

Two Stars

Dr Clarkson is kind, but I never feel like she's listening to me. Sometimes I feel rushed in my appointments, like she is stressed out and just wants to get through it. She also never really gave me a diagnosis or explained what the medications she prescribed are supposed to be treating. This is a very busy practice and it is impossible to reschedule appointments. If you call even a week in advance to reschedule, it'll be another month before you can get a new appointment, way after you're due to come in. The receptionists aren't always courteous either.

Dr. Clarkson is a rare find!

Dr. Clarkson is one of the most caring doctors I have ever had. She takes her time and really listens to you. Appointments are usually 15 minutes but you don't feel rushed if she needs to spend extra time with you she will and that's why I don't mind waiting for my appt because she is taking the time with the patient before me. I highly recommend this doctor!
