Specialties

Dr. Carolina Ionete 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.

Disappointed

I came to this woman for help after 8 months of discomfort and pain after 3 dr.s and about 5 mris. I was so hopeful and excited to go to this place! My first visit was basically saying she wanted to do her own mris and follow up in 4 months! I started balling my eyes out when she said 4 months. Another 4 months with no help. She stood there talking away about the mri and records and whatnot as she watched me cry. Not even a simple look of compassion on her face. And she was out the door I did the mri and went a week later for them to go over it with me. The resident discussed them with me. Dr. Ionete came in for not even 5 minutes. She stop taking one of the meds and call me in 3 months, with no diagnosis, no treatment, nothing. I said so now im back to square1, where i was 8 months ago, with no answers?? And she says Yea and walks out the door. Most heartless dr. i have ever been to NEVER going back there again.

I don't know why everyone else is fooled by her, she really isn't smart enough to be a doctor. She actually said to me that it's not her job to get to know her patients.
