Specialties

Dr. David A Gehret 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.

Second Opinion visit

I was referred to Dr Gehret for a second opinion and EMG/NCV after initial CTS diagnosis could not be validated. The exam and tests were thorough and well-explained. The doctor correctly suspected a serious problem and accelerated my care by arranging an immediate MRI and next day consult. I was provided comprehensive same day visit reports and surgeon referral. Because of the responsiveness of Dr Gehret and staff, I had a first meeting with a surgeon less than a week later. His local patients are fortunate to have him but never hesitate to commute further to see him for a second opinion. I highly recommend Dr Gehret.

Caring and knowledgeable doctor

Dr. Gehret is a caring and knowledgeable doctor. We had tried many doctors in neurology, orthopedics, rheumatoid, etc. here at US as well as in Japan. But no doctor could tell what is wrong with my wife. We almost gave up since no one could find out what the cause of her disease is. We had asked many people if they know a good doctor in neurology. Then the optometrist we go to told us that Dr. Gehret was the first one who figured out what is wrong with her mother after they tried all kinds of doctors. So we made an appointment and he diagnosed her accurately at the first visit when she described her symptoms even though her disease is one of the rare diseases. We really appreciate her referral. We are very much grateful to him and feel very fortunate to have found such a knowledgeable doctor in this field of specialty.
