Dr. Charles Oestreicher has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Psychiatrist made fun of me

I was seeing a psychiatrist and I had told him my symptoms. He had a very good rating on his online reviews and my gut felt terribly confident when I started seeing him. Immediately, he had told me with confidence that he knew what was "wrong" - I was self-conscious. He had said it took one to know one - meaning he had gone through the same thing. I was very happy to hear that. Then I started listening to hs interesting steps on how to overcome self-consciousness - he gave me everyday daily assignments, along with psychotherapy(?) and weekly sessions. He gave a book to read, "Playing with Reality" by D.W. Winnicott. I guess we were going to psychologically play during sessions. Psychologically develop? I dunno ... One session, he was saying stuff and remember not caring what he said cause I didnt understand. He said outright that he was making fun of me. I casually laughed it off automatically as if it didn't bother me. I was made fun of a lot, most importantly, I was very sensitive and always felt terribly humiliated. He kicked me out of the session once I did that and I never saw him again.
