Specialties

Dr. Bernard E Kole has the following 3 specialties

  • Geriatric Psychiatry
  • 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.

  • Neurology

Run away from this dr or you will be worse

He is a psychological predator. He bought his "top doc" rating. He is a hack. Has no morals, ethics, or common desensy. Only wants your money. Sick, disgusting, and had to $$$ to keep his inflated ego going. Stay away!! This is not a joke.

Very helpful and very knowledgeable

I have been taking my elderly father to Dr. Kole for some time now. To help with his anxiety. Dr. Kole made a very accurate diagnosis, and prescribed medication to my father. After a week or so, my father seemed much calmer, and less anxious. I highly recommend Dr. Kole.

Dr. of Psychiatry?

We were absolutely appalled by the remarks Dr. Kole made to our mother at the hospital. His demeanor, the way he spoke to her, and his assertion that her husband "must be a saint" were completely uncalled for and not at all what we would expect from a psychiatrist dealing with an 86 year woman who is having severe hallucinations. My husband had to ask Dr. Kole if he was an Internest as we were not sure what his specialty was. Now that I think of it, he should have told us when he introduced himself. Thankfully she is leaving Providence Park and won't have to deal with him again. I am disappointed that a doctor like this is on their staff.
