Specialties

Dr. Benjamin Chu 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

Worst psychiatrist I ever saw!! I'm not one to write reviews, but after a fe sessions with this "so called doctor" I don't want anyone to go thru what I did...if u can't even spell a medication properly, he won't keep u as a patient! Who can spell all generic medications!! Please, save urself, don't let him put u on medications and get your body used to them, only to have this "doctor" make u leave his practice, he is UNETHICAL and should not be practicing.. Again, only writing this so no one else has to go through what I did
