Specialties

Dr. Agustin G Yip 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.

A Caring Doctor

I understand the other reviewer's issue with access to Dr. Yip only one day a week. I'm self-employed, so it's not an issue with me. I have found Dr. Yip to be professional, compassionate, thoughtful, and very pleasant to visit. He takes the time to actually LISTEN to me – patiently. I have never had a complaint regarding his medical treatment of my depression, anxiety, and OCD. His PhD is a great addition to his MD status and is helpful when talking about life's tribulations. It's also useful when prescribing the proper medications. I know that when I leave my appointment he is only a phone call away when I’m in desperate need of his advice. From the many years of being in therapy, I know I'm receiving the absolute best care.

Two Stars

He only sees patients one day a week. There can be up to a half hour wait on appointment day. I have been treated well and I have been treated rudely by staff. Checking out after an appointment is not always a welcoming process. I know my doctor knows my diagnosis, but he continuously asks hurtful questions because I have mental illnesses (and not because I display symptoms worthy of the questions) that do NOT apply to me at all - in fact, they never have applied to me. He has a good bedside manner. He spends time and appears to be thorough. He doesn't follow up after visits.
