Specialties

Dr. David C Urrate 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.

One Star

This doctor wrote a letter regarding the decline of my health without my permission to someone who should never had asked for it! Thank god the office workers called me to tell ne the letter was ready. The doctor called the person who asked for the letter to tell him it was ready. I should have turned this doctor in. I luckily intercepted the letter!! Unethical disgraceful doctor.

Nonjudgemental

Dr. Urrate never pushes medications on me, he understands my difficulties with medications and never belittles me because of them like other doctors have. He is always up on the latest medications and gives me samples to try them as he knows they may not work for me. He is compassionate when I need him to be and treats me like a normal person with a disease.
