Dr. David B Vanholla has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

Exceptional care, follow through, understanding and compassionate. I could not ask for more in a psychiatrist. Not only does Dr. VanHolla spend time on medication issues, he delves into underlying issues that a normal psychiatrist would leave to a therapist. He is always asking if there's more to discuss before the end of the appointment. He is not a clock watcher, and in fact when his receptionists give the phone prompt reminding him of the time, he doesn't let that interfere with where he's at with you. He has even taken time from his lunch to squeeze in appointments if necessary. His office staff is exceptional. Based on the rural area and lack of providers, he may be difficult to initially get into. However, it is well worth the wait. The only negative is I wish there were more like him and I wish that you could take everything about him and add him as a therapist also.
I'd like to address the first commenter's post: It may be an insurance/coverage/ethics issue he's trying to avoid. If he's already at the VA and being paid for being there, seeing someone from that facility doesn't make insurance companies happy... The second commenter: Stating random phrases w/o giving a reason isn't a very fair way to rate a professional. Especially in the field that Dr. V is in. I've known Dr. V for a long time. Outside and inside of his practice. He isn't the type of person, let alone professional, who would just refuse to see someone unless there was a valid reason. He's a great psychiatrist. He's been a great provider for myself, my son and quite a few other people I know. He takes the time listen and give honest feedback. He also is very adept at suggesting therapists, techniques to help with symptoms, literature to read so one is more understanding of their issues. Dave is very good about keeping up with new advances in his field. Out of all of the psychiatrists I've seen, he's the first one who didn't want to insta-medicate me. We actually spent time conversing about my background and discovering red flags that pointed to the culimnation of my issues. He then suggested a therapist who could help with those behaviors and then we worked out a treatment plan.
I am a veteran with a need to see a physiciatrist outside the VA system due to a sensitive issueI did not want in my records at the VA because I work there. My VA physiciatrist instructed me to seek an outside source. I called today for a appointment and was turned down because I am a veteran and he sees veterans at the VA. Thank you very much for your concern. I will be sure not to recomend him to anyone else.
