Specialties

Dr. Virginia E Merritt has the following 4 specialties

  • Forensic Psychiatry
  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • 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.

  • 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.

Poor service

Terrible interactions with clients, poor personal hygiene, doesn't return messages. I do not recommend this doctor as a good fit for anyone. She should work at the DMV.

After receiving diagnoses elsewhere, both of my children have been seeing Dr. Merritt for several years. She has a great way about her and puts everyone at ease. She is responsive and welcomes input from patients and family members. We like that she talks to the children, while some doctors just seem to want to talk about them. She does not make us feel rushed. She stays up to date with current research and medications. Considering how few child psychiatrists there are, we feel incredibly lucky to have found one as great as Dr. Merritt.
