Specialties

Dr. Bryan L Philbrook 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.

great Neurologist!!

First let me start by saying if you have any experience with pediatric neurologists, you know pretty much all of them have a wait list...I learned the hard way and took the first available at a different practice and it was a nightmare of an experience. Dr. Philbrook is wonderful...he is great with my son, very thorough and didn't act bothered by questions. He listens to the parent and patient! I can't say enough about how wonderful he was. The nurses and front desk staff were very friendly as well(Johnsons Ferry location). So glad we switched to this doctor!

Best neurologist by far

After 4 years of undiagnosed seizures, Dr. Philbrook was the first and only neurologist who was able to figure out what was wrong with me and fix the problem. He listened to me, worked with me when I didn't like certain medications, and always seemed genuinely interested in helping me, not just prescribing something and sending me on my way.
