Specialties

Dr. Andrea J Waxman 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.

Dr. Waxman Gets It...

What can you say about a doctor that after suffering for 34 years with Bipolar Disorder, was the ONLY psychiatrist that took the time and had the patience to play her hunch that clinical depression wasn't the real diagnosis for me. Since then she has helped me to stabilize my disorder and help me come to grips with what my future will be like. Perhaps her best trait is the lack of a rigid dogma. She works with me, not me for her. She encourages my participation in my own treatment. Add to that, in my worst times, she has NEVER pushed me out the door to keep on some schedule. Psychiatric patients have different needs and she is excellent at tailoring resources to help me. She knows doctor patient boundaries, but she also knows that her patients aren't robots. She has handled my case with skill and caring and as previously stated, our interaction is more akin to a relaxed partnership. If I have ideas, they are not dismissed out of hand, but rather examined, discussed and a consensus is built for my treatment plan. Wish I had the 35 years with incorrect treatment and diagnosis back, but she has given me the last ten and for that I am grateful.
