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.

Warnie Webster diagnosed me with Tourette's about a decade ago but neglected to tell me or my parents. We found out when I saw another doctor on a completely unrelated issue. He asked me how the Tourette's was going. I was confused. He then handed over a letter in which Webster stated that I had Tourette's. It was dated about ten years ago.I was never told about this, my parents have zero recollection of it, and my primary care provider never got a copy of the letter. I felt at the time of her treatment that she really had little interest in actively involving me in treatment. She spent most of the sessions talking to my parents. I know I was a kid with problems, but I found her rather rude. I've dealt with other mental health professionals and never came across another one who rubbed me the wrong way.To find out a decade late that I might have had Tourette's really confirmed why me and my parents decided to seek another psychiatrist. It turns out that I don't have Tourette's, which adds another level to the injury. Not only did she make a diagnosis and transmit it to another doctor, but it turned out to be wrong.Maybe she can help your kid, but she didn't do much for me. My parents were incensed when they found out about her failure to disclose the Tourette's diagnosis.There are plenty of psychiatrists in the Yellow Pages. This is strictly my opinion, but I'd make another selection if my kid was in the equation.
I recently went to a neurologist for an exam into some essential tremors. I had recently moved from a pediatric to an adult practice, so this was my first meeting with this particular neurologist. He began to look over my case file, looked back at me, and then skeptically asked, "How are you doing so well with the Tourette's?I looked back at him with confusion. I told him that I had never been diagnosed with Tourette's. He pulled a letter from the old neurologist's file. "A Warnie Webster says here that you have Tourette's."I simply responded that I had never heard of this before. It had been about a decade since I had seen Dr. Webster.This neurologist (who has an M.D. and PhD) looked at me and said, "Everything else in your files matches the person I see in front of me. Tourette's can be subtle. I guess you could have it, but you're doing pretty well for someone who didn't have a diagnosis, let alone treatment."I asked my parents about whether they had kept this information from me when I was young. They never heard of this either. Both kept copious notes of my treatments and work in psych. My primary care physician, the school psychologists who tested me, and my current psychiatrist never got anything from Dr. Webster about this diagnosis. Somehow this letter only existed in the dusty archives of a pediatric neurologist.I know that mistakes happen and people screw up, but it's pretty rough to be in college and find out that for the first time that you might have Tourette's Syndrome.
