Specialties

Dr. Verna R Burdett 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.

  • 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.

Gross Misdiagnosis

Four years of misdiagnosis; meds exacerbated daughter's actual bipolar disorder. Suggestions made that more was going on than anxiety, perhaps bipolar, were brushed off. Dr's obvious impatience with daughter's progress led to her being handled like a disciplinary problem and slacker student (she has a genius level IQ). Having suicidal ideations, calls to make an appt after a 6 month sabbatical, went unreturned despite desperate pleas to return my calls. Hindsight: was the best thing the dr had done for my daughter. A couple dr's later, daughter was told she had classic symptoms of bipolar, was also id'd as having ADD; received proper meds and just after a few DAYS, improvement was clear. She's now finding tremendous success in utilizing her amazing talents and for the first time is experiencing happiness and hopes for a promising future. Her confidence increases by the day as she becomes aquatinted with the person who had previously been buried underneath this extremely cruel disorder.

mom of patient

Dr. Burdette is direct yet compassionate, provides details, gives a realistic outlook, and has so much experience. Our daughter has stumped a lot of doctors, but we have gotten farther in Dr. Burdette's excellent care than with anyone else. We love her and highly recommend her. Her staff is truly caring and kind, and you get that from the moment you check in.

Highly Recommend

If you are looking for a highly intelligent and competent doctor, who does not need therapy herself, this is who you want to see. She is logical, pragmatic, concise, and to the point. There is a long wait for new patients, but she is well worth it.
