Specialties

Dr. Darko Zdilar 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.

Amazing doc

Dr. Z is probably the most charismatic doctor I know. He really listens to and is considerate of his patients. My quality of life would be much lower without his help.

The best psychiatrist I have ever had.

Zdilar listens, gets to know you, is very calm and considerate and sincere, yet remains firm to the point; he listens to your concerns and is very logical in his solutions without being unsypmathetic. He knows what he is talking about and knows a great deal about every possible treatment--medical or nonmedical--which can be of aid.

Head Docs...

I have seen this doctor for several years now. Along with many others, he is very busy but he always takes his time with me and my diagnosis...he does what he can medically and morally to truly understand my mental and physical issues. I would recommend him to anyone.
