Specialties

Dr. Christopher R Galbreath 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.

I need Dr. Galbreath for meds, but he is the most uncaring doctor I've ever had. He shames me, belittles me, invalidates me, and mostly ignores me. I leave there feeling dirty for having bared my soul. I've had wonderful shrinks (I moved away), so I know the difference.

I was with Dr. Galbreath for three years and in that time he really did nothing to help me. I wouldn't recommend him. I feel like I lost three years of my life, miserable and alone.

Run away from this guy. He has been known to abandon patients who have been admitted to the hospital.

Excellent

I really think Dr. Galbreath is excellent. Very caring and kind. the only problem I have had is trying to get an appointment. I left several messages and his secratary never called me back. I finally got the other secretary to answer the phone and was able to schedule a follow-up appointment. Not as soon as I wanted it to be --probably beacause it took me an entire week to get someone live to talk to!
