Dr. Victoria L Brooks has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

she was my doctor a lot in c-pep since i was little...

Dr. Brooks is a great doctor I known her since I was a young teenager and she knows I've been through so much stuff and she is always honest she knows when I need to stay stable and she thinks a group home would be the best for me. She tells it like it is does not sugar coat anything. she takes her time and listens to what I have to say and gives me the right feedback. She always explains to me that I cant fix the world I can only fix myself and the things I do. Over all I think she is a great doctor but when i'm having a hard time I just wish she would give me a PRN (medication). but she knows I just use it as an exscape and wants me to learn healthy coping skills. I give her a lot of credit for being a psychiatrist at c-pep cause its crazy in there phew!!!!!!! GOOD WORK!!!!! with me and all the other patients. It means a lot oh an she also doesn't like to admt me to the hospital because I think she thanks I use it as an escapre and not use my coping skills to change the problem instead of heading from it... Well I guess she maybe right huh! GOOD WORK KEEP IT UP A LOT OF US APPERAITE YOUR HELP!!!

Zero bedside manner. Compassion. She did however want to free up a bed so I thank her for overruling another doctor and letting me out of a vile torture dungeon. Oh and 3 days in an ER waiting room wasn't listed as an option for wait time to see her.
