Specialties

Dr. Berne B Bahnson 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.

Called 911 for no reason abused his authority as my doctor

This doctor claimed he got a number of phone calls regarding me. I had just talked to his nurse 4 days prior to schedule my dr only visit and to make sure my meds were current. Four days later I get a call from the nurse telling me to take an additional med and if I did not I would be hospitalized and police would show up at my door. The next day he called 911 and four officers showed up for a well check. I am fine but this upset my family. This guy is shady I would not recommend him and I do not trust him now. I actually offered to see him in person as I am doing well. He claimed he got a number of calls concerning my well being which is why he threatened me with police if I did not take additional medicine. He could lose his license for threatening me to take additional medicine I do not need.
