Specialties

Dr. Rachel E Dew 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.

She is completely in tune with the teenage mind. This is the first psychiatrist that my daughter has ever liked.

EXCELLENT MD/PSYCHIATRIST

My overall experience with Dr. Dew could not be better! I respect her professionalism and dedication. Dr. Dew truly has all the qualities one could hope for in a great psychiatrist!I gladly make the 4 hr. drive to Duke University from Charlotte After visiting quite a few of the "top-rated" psychs in Charlotte I was disappointed with their "treatment". (One Dr. had 15 patients that were waiting anxiouslly. I waited as each went in and after 3-5 min they walked out with an RX in their hand to make seven-30 day follow-up appt! After a brief 10 min wait Dr. Dew personally came and introduced herself. Her office provides privacy and she has a steady, dissarming pace and took time to understand my situation and provided insights and options for current and future treatment while taking into consideration what had and had not worked for me in the past.She sat facing me tag notes on a pad yet often looking me in the eye. (instead of typing with her back to me!)Finally I felt that I could be honest and open. She works with me to schedule follow up appointments. I've had to contact her twice by phone and both times she called me back personally within the hour! I'd strongly recommend Dr. Dew!
