Dr. Toby B Dewitt has the following 3 specialties
- Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
- 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 was diagnosed with a Severe Anxiety and Depression Disorder when I was 15; my sophomore year of high school. After going through countless doctors and them not being able to help figure things out I finally found him. This man, is, by far, the most amazing psychiatrist out there. I was in a very deep, suicidal hole and he brought me out of it without pushing me to limits I was not ready to accept. He took his time to get me to where I needed to be. He has been there when I needed him, whether it be a text or a phone call, or an office visit at my lowest moments since then, which thankfully for him, there have not been many of those. He does not push you to do, take, or try anything you do not feel comfortable doing. There have been countless times where our office visit consisted of me just sitting and crying. He just knows how to react and his knowledge of the psychiatric world is beyond me. I would not be here today, 11 years later, without him. If you need a psychiatrist that will listen, care, and just plain be there for you, he is it. He is a godsend.
If you or your child are experiencing psychiatric problems, I could not recommend a better person to serve as a partner in your own or your child's care. He has been supportive and helpful and respectful during 6 hard years of dealing with a life-threatening psychiatric problem. I am not sure I would be here to write this if I had not found him in my darkest hour.
obviously cares about the well being of his fellow man. he doesn't push drugs on you, listens, and is never too reactionary. Very nice guy on top of all that, you don't feel like another customer.
