Dr. Fenton's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Fenton "Dr. Fenton treats the spectrum of psychiatric and medical conditions with a focus on early diagnosis, patient education, and prevention of functional limitations. ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, anxiety disorders, depression, post-partum depression, and OCD are some of her many areas of expertise. She employs a variety of treatment methods including psychotherapy, family therapy, and cognitive behavioral techniques depending on the needs of her patients. She often sees more than one family member in individual treatment, and is happy to meet with those family members collaborative treaters her patients invite to participate. She has earned an outstanding reputation as a diagnostician and consultant among patients and referring physicians. Dr. Fenton is a member of the American Psychiatric Society, the Massachusetts Medical Association, and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. She has lectured and contributed to publications on bipolar disorder, grief, and the role of stigma in psychiatric diagnosis and treatment. Her children's book Tikun Olam, Fixing the World, which she authored and illustrated, is widely used to help children cope with grief and loss."
This content was provided by Dr. Fenton "From the dawn of medicine, physicians have learned that 99% of diagnosis is made by taking a good patient history which requires the ability to listen to their patients. Modern insurance pressures have restricted primary care physicians to a brief 15 minutes per office visit. The result is a reliance on invasive tests and procedures in place of taking a good patient history. This has caused significant problems for patients due to the financial and logistical burden of travel time for appointments, co-pays, and missed days at work, as well as the heightened anxiety they experience waiting for the diagnosis.
Dr. Fenton still takes the time to listen and ask the right questions. She listens with a medically trained ear, a mental textbook of medicine, anatomy, physiology, psychiatry, neurology, endocrinology, pharmacology, an understanding of the emotional, social, and psychological implications involved in her patients' condition, and most important, over 35 years of patient experience"
