Specialties

Dr. Allison D Brashear has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

I went to the first appointment with great expectations as she is the Department Head, the quality of care, accuracy of diagnosis, and patient experience could not have been further from the expectations I had prior to seeing her. If referred to Dr. Kapural, save your time money and aggravation. Dr. Brashear has her diagnosis pre-formed before your appointment, and leaves her interns?(under studies) behind halfway through the appointment to do what she should have done. She failed to diagnose a condition that she should have seen waving at her.

Dr Brashear herself was wonderful. Took lots of time with my elderly mom and did her best (and loudest :)) to explain things to her. The staff was also wonderful. The wait times were typical . Getting thru on the phone was horrendous! First off, couldn't find the correct phone number online, then went thru a series of press 1, press 2, etc. Frustrating!
