Specialties

Dr. Claire S Riley 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.

Four Stars

Brilliant. Very Knowledgeable about, and creative with, Meds. Doesn't consider the "whole person." Can be brusque at times. More clinical than personable.

The doctor was so wonderful to call me personally at 4:30 pm on a Friday afternoon and arrange for a nurse practitioner to come to my home and provide me an immediate 3 day IV treatment. I've worked the last 20+ yrs of my life in healthcare so I can tell you that this is a talented brilliant doc to have on your team.

the best ms dr ever

Dr. Riley is the BEST doctor I have seen since being diagnosed with MS in 2004. She is everything you want in a doctor. I love her. She does not leave the exam room without discussing everything with you. If you need an hour - she'll give you the hour. Of course she has nurse practitioners that you talk to but she is right there with her medical opinion and explains her reasoning! She doesn't just say "we're going to do this" without explaining why. After years and years with different doctors I have finally found THE ONE!
