Specialties

Dr. Allen D Pettee has the following 3 specialties

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • 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.

  • 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.

Dissatisfied

I found him to be arrogant and condescending. He spent a great deal of my time talking about the incompetence of my other doctors. I was sent to him for a nerve study by my back doctor. I have another neurologist who I see for other issues and he is personable and highly competent, but Dr. Pettee works out of the back doctor's office occasionally so I am assuming it is "one hand washes the other". I would not go to this neurologist again!

RUDE & INSULTING

Three months to get the appointment. Petee was in a hurry and made it clear he wasn't interested. I was insulted when describing my symptoms. Lots of money for nothing.

Office visit

At my first appointment I felt that I was being told I had anxiety as the reason for my pain before the doctor asked me my history. The room is old and not warm or inviting. I was charged a whole lot of money for an office visit. The secretary could of warned me about the price before coming in and then wanting the money up front while checking out.
