Dr. Sherry Barron-Seabrook has the following 3 specialties
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
- 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.
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.

I went to Dr. Seabrook a long time ago, when I was in middle school. After several years, Dr. Seabrook did a horrible thing and put me, an adolescent in middle school on an antipsychotic called Risperdal for generalized anxiety disorder. Back in 2001-2002 Risperdal was not approved for use in adolescents and teenagers and was not approved to treat generalized anxiety disorder. Any doctor who puts teenagers, pre-teens, adolescents and c hildren on antipsychotics for off label use is a horrible doctor. Risperdal had horrible side effects and messed up my mind and my body. Despite the horrible side effects, Dr. Seabrrok continued to pressure my mom, who at the time was in charge of the medication, to keep me on this horrible anti-psychotic. Doctors should not be prescribing anti-psychotics to teenagers, pre-teens or children, especially not for anxiety. This doctor also put me on a lot of stimulants whichc changed my personality, the stimulants got me into a lot of trouble and ruined a lot for things in my life and I was never told it was the stimulants, I thought it was me. The antipsychotic I was put on had horrendous side effects and any doctor who puts adolescents on anti-psychoticsc for off label sue without warning about the horrible side effects it has and how adolescents are especially vulnerable to them is a horrible doctor, period.c Risperdal is an especially dangerous antipsychoticc for adolescents, because it has a lot of hormones in it like prolactin whichc affect puberty and the development of adolescents.
