Specialties

Dr. Alberto A Penalver 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.

HORRIBLE DOCTOR

THIS IS THE WORST DOCTOR I'VE EVER HAD TO DEAL WITH. HE HAS NO SYMPATHY FOR PATIENTS AND ACTUALLY TOLD MY SICK MOTHER THAT IF SHE WAS SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING SUICIDE SHE SHOULD TRY HARDER. SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO PRACTICE.

Awful doctor and care

This is by far, the worst doctor I have ever come across. It is beyond me how this person even obtained a license to become a medical doctor. Aside from wanting to release a psychiatric patient within less than 48 hours after attempting suicide, he was unprofessional, unethical, pompous, and downright rude to their patient and family. As a result of his demeanor and his unprofessional manner, it caused my mentally ill relative great emotional distress to the point where started uncontrollably shaking.If you are currently receiving treatment from this doctor and/or the relative of someone assigned to this general contractor physician, please seriously consider another psychiatrist.
