Specialties

Dr. Cheryl A Ristig 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.

Sometimes it’s about what a Dr. doesn’t do

Saw Dr. Ristig for balance disorder of unknown origin. I was angry because other doctors sent me to her because my dizziness was “all in my head.” Dr. Ristig evaluated me and correctly found that it was NOT. She sent me back to the neurologists and neurotologists to find an appropriate solution. Some doctors will tell you that your medical issue is within their field of expertise - another patient, right? I’ve been to several of these in my search for relief. Wasted a lot of time and money. Not Dr. Ristig. She only accepts patients that need a psychiatrist. I am so grateful for her knowledge, experience and honesty.

accessability

Dr. Ridtig is very personable and takes a genuine interest in you. I only see her every 3 months but she is always available if I have problems inbetween. I have been seeing her for some 10 years and would hate to have to go to another doctor.
