Specialties

Dr. Colleen B Tomcik 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.

Dr. Tomcik was very attentive and helpful in determining what to do with my health issues. It is difficult at times to call in and leave a message with your doctor, you really can't get anyone to answer the phone it always seems you have to leave a message and you may not have someone get back to you in 24hrs.

Thorough, Knowledgeable, Intelligent and Caring Doctor

Dr. Tomcik had done a thorough review of my lengthy chart before coming into the room, and so we didn't have to spend half my first appointment with a review of my case history. Instead, she asked questions about current symptoms or clarified parts of my case history that were unclear to her. Then she asked me questions which none of the several neurologists I've seen have asked. All of this led to a diagnosis of my condition that has been a mystery for more than 4 years. She knows her stuff, stays current on research, and has a pleasant manner. Highly recommend her.
