Specialties

Dr. Alexander S Isaac 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.

Abrasive and abusive

I was treated by this doctor years ago at Fairfax Hospital. He is hands down one of the worst psychiatrists I have ever consulted--opinionated, full of himself, dismissive of patients, abrupt in his diagnosing and prescribing, and also just plain wrong in his assessment of my condition. He missed simple medical reasons for my depression symptoms and instead tended to launch into lengthy harangues that were largely demeaning toward me. I overheard his consultations with other patients, enough to think he's that way with many people. I also spoke later with psychiatric nurses who had studied with him, and they became notably silent when asked what they thought of him. For my own part, I filed a complaint with the hospital concerning his behavior. Dr. Isaac is the sole reason I have avoided seeking treatment at Fairfax Hospital for over 5 years.
