Specialties

Dr. Bevan Steadman 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.

Victim

steadman: my diagnosis was made with no psychological testing what so ever.The misdiagnosis was bipolar disorder when it was actually reactive attachment disorder. This misdiagnosis is made 70% of the time by therapists who use no psychological, DNA, or other testing to determine the real truth. Steadman's misdiagnosis caused me to waste two years of my life in nursing homes. Steadman did not use any psychological, genetic or other testing methods to prove his diagnosis. As a consequence I spent two years in nursing homes with no proof of diagnosis. The misdiagnosis was bipolar disorder when in reality it was reactive attachment disorder. HOW MANY OTHER PEOPLES LIVES HAVE BEEN SIMILARILY AFFECTED BY STEADMAN'S INCOMPETENCE?
