Specialties

Dr. Benjamin W Raatjes 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.

Two Stars

Jacobi and the psychiatrist especially Dr. Rat-jes should have the state investigate this group . This white doctor is prejudice against minorities and talks down to patients. He is too busy trying to be a police officer and working with NYPD to go undercover and capture drug dealers selling K2 instead of helping patients. Somebody please go and secretly investigate this doctor and get him out of our community hospital.

I did not lime his bedside manner i request to talk to him about my fisgnosis and he had me wait 7 hrs and left only to have a social worker explain my diagnosis and admit me to inpatient mental health floor. I will never go to see this doctor again. I think he was a resident he didnt seem to know what he was doing. I ask for a sandwich and he refused to fed me

Worse person I ever met I don't think he has a license. He is too stupid and stupid looking. He sounds like a girl and looks like Ronald McDonald.

Very prejudice and incompetent I would sent a dead animal to him. He favors Chinese and gays. He is a disgrace to his profession and every evil things he does to patients will come back to him by the way of Karma be careful when seeking mental help under this devil from Chicago
