Specialties

Dr. Carlos A Mora 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.

My recent appointment with Dr. Mora was amazing. I still do not have a diagnosis, but in the many months of seeing many doctors, he is the first to actually seem to CARE and give CARE. I have been sent off to do numerous tests at his request, because he listens to your symptoms and in my case is trying to narrow down my diagnosis. I waited a long time to get an appointment, but he was worth the wait. He is knowledgeable, kind, and considerate with his patients.

Like many doctors, Dr. Mora's biggest problem is his inept office staff. I saw Dr. Mora in the hospital and needed a follow up MRI but his staff wouldn't let me see him because I was treated as an inpatient, not an office patient. This makes no sense! At their request, I faxed all my medical records, proving that Dr. Mora wrote a scrip for a follow up MRI because I had "white dots indicative of changes in the brain", and they never called back. I called them back, and they still didn't return my call. Plus you have to go through an incredibly long phone train to get to his PA (who dropped the ball twice). If I had a serious neurological disorder, instead of a routine concussion, I would be in real trouble. Actually maybe I do, but I gave up trying to chase down his office staff and get a second MRI and a follow-up appt. even though Dr. Mora recommended this.

Brilliant, deeply compassionate doctor

You could not ask for a better neurologist. He is absolutely brilliant, but still courteous and patient and attends to the whole person.
