Dr. Divina G Oropilla 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.

I suffered 2 (yes 2) brain aneurysms, had 4 surgeries to correct the damage that was done after they both ruptured. After my surgeries, I had to learn to walk & talk again. Due to my brain trauma, I was referred to Dr. Oropilla for follow-ups & to make sure I was progressing as expected. I constantly thank God she became my Neurologist. She always took such excellent care of me and was completely & totally accurate in all she did to ensure I would return to as 'normal' as possible. She spent quite a lot of time with me & always answered my questions accurately & with patience. If I still had Kaiser Insurance I would still be going to her for my brain check-ups. Sadly, I have been deteriorating because the only doctors I see now are interns training at County hospitals. They try but are not quite 'there' yet.
Very detailed diagnosis and explanation of super complex condition. Very kind and thoughtful, going out of her way to schedule appointments and to set up appointments with neurosurgeons. Thankful I live in such a technologically advanced country. Some people walk for days and then have to wait for days to see a doctor that cant even help them.
Personally was not satisfied with this Doctor. I came to her with some suspected issues I was having, all of which she dismissed out of hand and without giving any of them a second thought, let alone proper diagnostic testing. She did not provide any reasoning or scientific support for her quick dismissal of my concerns, but simply assumed (I'm guessing) that her authority as a neurologist superseded any need for justification or evidence. I asked if I could be tested for the things I was experiencing, and she basically said "it's not necessary because you don't have it". After this disappointing visit, I tried to follow up via email with further inquiries and concerns, none of which she addressed but instead simply stated that I "am entitled to a second opinion". As a patient, this made me feel unappreciated and, in my opinion, showed negligence on her part as a medical expert. I will be seeking out a different neurologist in the future.
I will not recomend this Dr at all. She has no caring, no professionalism of office or staff, she does not spend alot of time with the patient and she does not go out of her way to help the patient and rule out possible health issues. She dis a spinal tab on me and hurted me so bad that I thought she was gona leave me with my right leg paralized. I would not recomend this Dr at all. This was a very scary experience.
