Specialties

Dr. Christina E Peterson 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.

The most compassionate dr. I've seen for this migraine disease.

She was so though,and didn't question anything I was doing. She made me feel good and knew the answers before I even asked the question. Very compassionate along with being very knowledgable. At least now there is hope for me that I don't have to suffer.

Worth the travel!

My local doctor was not able to help my complex headaches. I found this doctor online, and decided to take a chance. It was risky to travel out of state for my medical care, but in the end, I feel it has been worth it.

She gave me my life back!

I have had migraines since the age of 11. Like many migraine sufferers I had gone from doctor to doctor seeking help but to no avail. I finally stumbled upon Dr. Peterson several years ago, and I am SO glad I did. For the first time in several years I actually had pain free days....then pain free weeks. Now I feel like I control my headaches rather than my headaches controlling me! Thank You Dr. P!
