Specialties

Dr. Cynthia L Theiss 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.

Horrible experience

I would not recommend this doctor to any one! She is dismissive and did not seem at all interested during the session. Dr. Theiss rarely made eye contact and wrote most of the session. She handed me a prescription and excused me without explaining anything, especially since there were changes made. She did not return my call when I had questions re: the changes, not to mention the pharmacy would not fill one of them since it was written incorrectly. Do yourself a favor and find someone new that actually cares and will spend more then a few minutes with you before rushing you out.

Stay Away

She lacks empathy. She's snarky and nasty. She advised me to stop taking antidepressants cold turkey, which let to a suicide attempt. She shouldn't be working with human beings.

disappointed is an understatement

Do not expect much from this provider. She is happy to bill you for your appointment, but that is where her interest ends. Follow up care does not exist. If you have any issues, her voice mail will tell you to call 911 because you will not be speaking to her anytime soon. She really could care less about your duress.

Worst! Made my kids lives miserable! Stay away!

This doctor and her nurse practitioner Gale will prescribe medicine and if the medicine doesn't work, they don't care! A simple question like can the medicine be taken at night versus morning - they can't answer that, and they avoided my calls or promised to call back but did not call back. They told me to ask the pharmacist for that simple question. My kid is not able to get up and missed a lot of school days and even missed his graduation because of the wrong medication they prescribed him, they were told about the situation but they just didn't care. For my other kid she prescribed the same medication without analyzing what is going, she said if it works with the sibling it should work with her. They ended up missing a lot of days in school. I moved them to a different psychiatrist, the new doctor removed all the medicines Dr. Theiss/Gale prescribed and both kids are now doing great in school!!! They were prescribed medications they don't need. Stay away from them. Zero star is what they deserved. When it comes to staff there's one that's nice, she's the older one.
