Specialties

Dr. Bruce L Saltz 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.
    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.

He treated me so well and during all of the time I spent with him and his staff, I never had a relapse of my symptoms. (About 2 years.) I've since moved out of the area and wish I could find a doctor just like him up North.

The most competent psychiatrist i've met.

Dr Saltz is not a pill dispenser, he spends a great deal of time questioning his patients and collecting both qualitative and quantitative data for his diagnosis.Thoughtful and careful, he takes complete histories and carefully considers drug interactions. While he is a very reserved person, his warmth and wit show themselves occasionally. In the handful of years he's treated me, i've come to respect and admire him as a wise and caring doctor, always putting the patient foremost, and never 'selling' services.

Bipolar disorder : his favorite diagnosis

Dr Saltz misdiagnosed me and two other patients that I am aware of with bipolar disorder. He overmedicates and would rather give another medication than admit an allergic reaction to a previous one. I went for a second opinion to another psychiatrist after rehabbing off of all of his over-prescribed medications and the doctor could find nothing wrong with me! Everything had been caused by the medications and my reactions to them. One year later, I am the happiest person I have been in a decade and am on no medications.
