Specialties

Dr. William Olmsted 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.

  • Child Psychiatry

    A pediatric/adolescent psychiatrist is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating mental and emotional conditions in young children and adolescents.
    These specialists study psychopathological disorders and their causes in order to prevent and identify them in their patients. These disorders may be caused by biological, psychosocial, genetic, demographic, or environmental factors, a patient's history, or any combination of these factors.
    Pediatric/adolescent psychiatrists treat patients through a variety of interventions including medical treatment, behavior therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy, problem solving techniques, family therapy, parent training, psychodynamic therapy, and consultation with the patient's primary care physician or school professionals.

One Star

Dr. Olmsted saw my child for several years and then, mysteriously stopped returning phone calls requesting apointments. He never said that he wished for us to find another doctor and did not give us referrals to other doctors. When we found a new doctor, he would not send the medical records after repeated phone calls, faxes, and certified letters. He was fined $500 by the State Board of Medical Exminers for not turning over the medical records. Only then did the new doctor receive the mnedical records-more than a year after medication management with the new doctor had begun. When we first started iwth him, he was very good. However, when he dropped us, he also dropped two other patients in the same way and would not release their records in a timely manner, either.
