Specialties

Dr. Alana P Cox 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.

Rebuffed

She truly cares about you and in her you really do see a light at the end of that uglly tunnel Unless you have a disability (ANY disability not just from mental illness) This is America and a decision not to take a patient's insurance be it Medicare or any other is ok, its a free country. BUT to reject a patient in need of care after being given an appt day (less than 2 wks) w/out any explanation except 'paperwork' from office manager Ashley and bubblehead #1? (would NOT give me her name no matter how nice or often I asked). There ARE people who are disabled who can pay for a service. It is an INSULT to those Americans who are in need of care to casually dismiss them for no valid reason whatsoever. I would be ashamed to be associated with this practice in any way shape or form. Please keep in mind these people who you are deluded into thinking care so much may not care much at all. Hope you are in excellent physical health and are in no danger of becoming disabled because you will be like me, unwelcome. Have fun with your fake flakes.
