Dr. Carolyn S Neff has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
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.
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.

We've had excellent visits with Dr Neff. Highly recommended.
Time is what has brought us to where we are with our daughter and time is what will continue to take us further along...Time is always on our side the good, the bad and the uncertain...Dr. Neff was the first hospital on call neurologist to take the time to talk with our daughter and listen... She made a difference today not only with our daughter but with me her mom..Yep that's all it took was her time...So grateful...
The most helpful and wonderful MD I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. She (and my previous Neuro) was also one of the first Neurlogists to express a desire to find out what's actually plaguing me. I've noticed that she spends time with her patients and doesn't leave any questions unanswered - very in-depth and helpful. Long story short; I have medications treating the symptoms of my movement disorder, and they are working. It's doctors like Dr. Neff that make having a difficult illness much easier in the long run. If you have a movement disorder and use Kaiser, I'd highly recommend her.
