Specialties

Dr. Anna Fitzgerald 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.

Great Doctor!

I have been a patient of Dr. Fitzgerald for approximately 14 years. She has been wonderful, brimming with kindness and respect for me. She is probably the most humble M.D. I have ever met. Her ability to medicate well is superb. She is an incredible winner!

Run, Don't Walk! Away from this psychiatrist!

While scheduling appointments is relatively easy, Dr. Fitzgerald lacks a courteous bedside manner and empathetic listening skills. She was often curt and rude with me and won't spend time discussing a patient's questions, rather relies upon handing out prescriptions and shoving people out the door.

smart, ethical and compassionate

Very "real," very smart, very compassionate. Willing to allow my opinions and feelings affect treatment. Honest, direct and forthright. She is an asset to BU.
