Specialties

Dr. Biljana D Beretich has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

She is wonderful. I was misdiagnosed by other doctors for 5 years before getting to her. Dr. Beretich is extremely knowledgeable and caring.

She told me the loss of feeling in my right hand was "not neurological" in spite of all the evidence on the MRI pointing in that direction. She offered no followup and very little concern that I don't feel my hand in the same way leading me to drop things. She also was not concerned about the falls I've had. She said these are not neurological either. I have a rapid hand tremor, loss of sensation, poor coordination. However, my reflexes aren't impacted so she doesn't see spinal or brain involvement. She looked at my MRI's (four years worth) for about ten minutes prior to making this conclusion. She gave no insight about a question I had about EMG results and had to consult another neurosurgeon to interpret the numbers. ALL neurosurgeons are supposed to know how to interpret EMG's. Very dissatisfied and worried still about my symptoms. My career and personal life are majorly impacted by this and she dismissed all of it without even an offer of a follow up.
