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.

Dr. Z is an outstanding physician and psychiatrist. We went to to see him with very little hope in a dark time of our family's life. Our teenager had tried to take her life and had been for inpatient pysch care. We were feeling pretty hopeless after having seen many other psychiatrists who seemed more interested in appearances and office furniture than their patients. We had gotten no where and other doctors only wanted to write a script and move on to the next patient. Dr. Z had us complete lengthy questionnaires about our child's behaviors since childhoood, our teen also completed her own forms. He was the first doctor to ask us about our child in depth and really listen. He told us he could help but it would be a long process and although she'd get better there would be set-backs and bumps in the road. He was the first doctor to really give us hope and make an accurate diagnosis. When things got rough he was always there. He didn't get upset when my teenager did. he never wavered. We are now 15 months after our first visit with Dr. Z and have made huge progress. Just having the right information and guidence has made all the difference. He has truly saved my child's life - I have no doubt and he's been an answer to prayer. He does not take insurance as his private practice is really part-time - but use your FSA if you have to - he's not expensive compared to other doctors - and worth every penny.
