Specialties

Dr. Cristina Cusin 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.

Best Psychiatrist Around

I've known Dr. Cusin for a number of years, and I think she is absolutely fantastic. Although extremely busy, she is always punctual, courteous and will spend as much time as necessary to listen to my concerns and treat every one of them with genuine compassion and care. She is extremely knowledgeable and has a lot of experience in her field. I trust her completely. Every question gets a thorough, honest answer. She always does what's best for me as an individual, treats me as an equal and encourages me to do the right things to enhance my quality of life. She gives great advice and will go out of her way to answer any question, no matter how trivial. She also has access to a lot of wonderful resources and works with some of the nicest people at MGH. I would never see another psychiatrist. I'd give her an A+
