Dr. Richard O Carpenter has the following 2 specialties
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.

he was excellent with my daughters needs. was not a drug pusher like some of the other psychiatrists around. but when we accidentally missed an appointment it has been impossible to reach the dr to make another appointment. after calling daily for almost two months i have sadly decided to look for another doctor for my daughter. its a shame because he worked wonders with my daughter
My family and I are so grateful to have Dr. Carpenter in our lives. We absolutely could not recommend more highly any doctor. Truly, his medical expertise and caring counseling have gotten each of us through many ups and downs and highly complicated, emotional situations. We are all different ages and in different stages of life and none of us could ask for any more in Dr. Carpenter.
Dr. Carpenter has changed the quality of my adult autistic son's life. We had been to the Medical College of Ga and were not given any help or hope. Dr. Carpenter very quickly located the problem and began treatment. Our son is now living with a quality of life that we could have only dreamed about prior to meeting Dr. Carpenter.
