Specialties

Dr. Bassam M El-Borno 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.

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

He listens and seems to actually care

I've been seeing Dr El-Borno for 2 months, not a long time. So far he's been great, I'm not really a big fan of doctors, but I actually like him. He listens, I know I'm paying him to listen, he actively listens to what I say and how I feel, it's very rare to find that quality in a doctor.

The best Psychiatrist I have ever had.

I have been lucky enough to have had Dr. El-Borno for over 20 years as my Psychiatrist. He still uses the old paper files for records and does not use the new age of electronics for record keeping. I seriously would not want to see any other Dr. He is warm and caring and always knows how to medicate me.

Dr. Borno is a great guy and Doctor.

Dr. Borno puts you at ease in the first few minutes.......he's very funny, and not very bad looking either 😌 I enjoy going to him, just don't be too late for your appointment, because he has other patients he must see and you'll have to come back another day. He's very good at what he does.......at time I felt as if he could read my mind! He has helped me a lot over the past year. I trust him completely and could tell him anything and it never goes any farther than us in the room, unless I tell him it's ok to tell my daughter or my brother.

Finally, a doctor who listens!

I am so grateful that my best friend referred me to him! I was struggling with bipolar disorder for years and when my family doctor retired I was left with no one that really wanted to listen to my mental health struggles. Dr. El Borno took the time to evaluate my issues and explain a course of treatment. He is patient, kind, and knowledgable in mental health. Highly recommended!

Terrible

I've been in therapy and on medication since I was 15 and this has been the only doctor to insult me and have absolutely no idea how to treat my problems.
