Specialties

Dr. Adrianus J De Ruitjer 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.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Review of our visit to see Dr. DeRuijter

My husband and I have been seeing Dr. De Ruijter for over 20 something years! We both do not know what we would do without him being there for us. Dr. De Ruijter is very professional, caring and understanding. It is always nice leaving his office feeling better about my situation and knowing that he is always there for me, for us. Dawn is always so nice, courteous and makes you feel welcomed with her sweet disposition and smile. We hope that Dr. De Ruijter can always be our doctor and would recommend him to our family, friends, and anyone looking for a terrific doctor.

An AMAZING Psychiatrist Unlike Any Othet

I had to experiment with several psychiatrists before I was so incredibly blessed to find Dr Deruijter. His unbelievably, immense knowledge pertaining to both to the mind itself as well as the dizzying plethora of psychiatric medications that are currently on the market is amazing and unsurpassable. You can tell that his profession is his passion, which greatly affects the level of care he provides to his patients. His demeanor is calming, gentle and sincerely caring and it's very obvious that he listens intently to every word you say. I realize that this is a lengthy review, but I the amount of gratitude that I possess for this Doctor is overwhelming. I truky believe that he saved my life, and thank God for him continuously.
