Specialties

Dr. Christina T Calabrese 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.

What every doctor should be

I am writing this on behalf of my father, whose health I manage and is a patient of Dr. Calabrese. Our experience has been one of a doctor that genuinely cares for her patients, follows up as needed, is available via telephone for additional consult. If all doctors had this level of caring for patients, the medical world would be a better place

Excellent Doctor!

Dr. Calabrese appears interested in her patients and actually listens to what they have to say. She seems to really care about the emotional and physical health of her patients. She seems to have a lot of empathy for what her patient is going through. She is very smart and knows her stuff. I am hard to win over when it comes to doctors but she has won me over. If you appreciate a caring doctor with a no nonsense approach then she would be a good fit.
