Specialties

Dr. Christopher A Sinnappan has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • 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 was told there was a two month wait list for dr. Sinnappan. I was called back early and able to get in in about two weeks. Dr. Sinnappan listened to what I had to say and I liked that he recommended me to try therapy before putting me on a ton of medications. He made me feel like what I said and felt mattered and he believed me. The psychiatry director, Jes, gave me her card and got me my follow with the doctor at a time that worked for me so I don't have to miss work. She was very helpful and so nice. This is a great place.

Seems to want to care but only get 15 minutes every 6 weeks

Should not have a medical license - especially not to prescribe things dealing with the brain. He is fine as long as everything is Perfect, you have no need to get a hold of him urgently, you expect a call back, and you don't want to get the medication right because you get 15 minutes every 6 weeks.

Very hard to get in to see. When you do you get canceled multiple times. Can go months between visits. The office looses test results and will have them ordered again to charge your insurance twice for the same procedure that you already paid for and they misplaced. Very disappointing that the state of Illinois is so limited in the child psychiatry field that this is acceptable, because there is not another provider within 100 miles taking patients.
