In the span of more than 40 years, Dr. Kinlan has treated hundreds of patients, and is well-known for her ability to quickly diagnose and rehabilitate them. With her own practice for more than 40 years, she is specialized in treating patients with ADHD, depression and bipolar disorder. Getting her patients on a road to recovery as soon as possible is a priority for Dr. Kinlan, and she discovered her talent for helping others while still in medical school. In that case, she worked with a family whose daughter suffered from a cardiac condition and depression. In that month, Dr. Kinlan was able to get her out of her depression, which in turn cured her cardiac condition. For Dr. Kinlan, it was the moment that cemented her decision to go into this field.
