Specialties

Alexander Papp 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.

Saved my life

Will answer calls same day. Gentle and will listen calmly. Offer a genetic testing and found out cause of depression was due to Fentanyl Patches. Immediately within the first couple of days, I was back slowly. 50% in 2 weeks. 80% a month later. 3 months and I am back 100% myself. I was so depressed all day, would not leave the house, was scared of being alone, could not watch TV as drama subject were sad, very scared watching TV bloody or suspense genre going to depression and fright. Wanted so much to end that was almost suicidal. No happiness, no joy, no interest in anything.
