Specialties

Dr. Ara K Yeretsian 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. Yeretsian has been my doctor for several years. He has been correct in my diagnosis; adult ADD with tendency of bipolar & anxiety. He has patiently worked with me to get the correct meds to help with the bipolar/anxiety issues. He has helped & encouraged activities to help deal with the ADD (no medicine prescribed)so he is not a pill pusher. Along with the mental issues, he has also sent me to specialists to help with other physical problems such as sleep apnea, and diabetes. It has been a very positive experience with a doctor looking at the "whole" of me to help make me a healthier , happier, individual. Yes, he can be tough at times but I'm not looking for a doctor to hold my hand but to be honest & to help me improve on health issues. He jokes around, has been very kind.

Dr. Yeretsian is not a pill pusher. He has taken the time to make sure that my health issues are tended to because they could very well be causing my psych issues. He has referred me to appropriate specialist and after feedback from them he has been targeting the areas that he specializes in to help my emotional problems.

Good doctor gone bad

I think he use to be a good doctor in his day but he has issues! Same experience with talking down to you, mean and hard to understand. Most every patient in waiting room look dead or like a zombie. He is a licensed drug dealer like most of them. Hard to find a good doctor of any kind these days. They move you through like cattle so they can pay thier overhead! Doctors are no longer challenged by helping people like they took oathe to. Not all their fault, it's because of the government, insurance companies etc.
