Which doctors specialize in schizophrenia?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Robert Kwok
32 years experience in Pediatrics
Psychiatrists: Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in schizophrenia. Psychiatrists can prescribe drugs, do talk therapy, and admit patients to psychiatric units at hospitals. Because many people have schizophrenia, most internists and family practice doctors are able to help take care of schizophrenia patients' non-psychiatric issues, while the psychiatrists take care of the schizophrenia.
