  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.

  • Neurology

Good Experience

This psychiatrist was very clear in her communication. She was caring and took the necessary steps to help me, when the previous psychiatrist had been a jerk. This was a refreshing difference.
