Dr. Barbara J Hastings 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

The very best

I've been a long for over 30 years. I used to see her almost daily. I'm extremely picky about what doctor I see. I was in the unique position to see the doctors behind the scenes. When I, or someone I cared about needed a neurologist, I didn't have to give it a second thought. When she's with a patient, that patient is the only thing in her world.
