Dr. Susan Shively has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Can this doctor help me?

I was treated by this doctor awhile ago and in the case of this type of doctor that makes the evaluation more valuable (IMO). She helped me to resolve the serious issues that I had although it was far from easy for both of us. She persisted though and I did as well. I never thought I could get to the place I am but I have. It seemed to be an insurmountable project so to speak. How can a rating of excellent say enough about a person who helped change a life so significantly? It really can't but it is the only measure available. If you are willing to work to achieve change consider yourself truly fortunate if this doctor is available.
