Specialties

Dr. Anthony G Bassanelli 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.

An Extraordinary Psychiatrist

I am 81 years old. From time to time I have felt the need of psychiatric counseling. I have never met anyone more capable at his profession. Before all else, he is a wonderful human being. Those are few and had to find in any profession . I speak as a member of a "learned profession" myself

underhanded charges

This doctor charges his patients a $375 "concierge" fee, above & beyond what insurance pays him. SHOCKING. When I asked what the fee was for, the office manager said it was so the doctor would be available 24/7 to his patients. (Aren't all doctors supposed to be available to patients 24/7 per their Hippocratic Oath?)
