Specialties

Dr. Donald Cluett 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.

The Best

Dr. Cluett is, I think, my third psychiatrist. Both my therapist and I agree he is outstanding. I never ever feel rushed in his office, he returns my calls, he returns my therapist's calls (which she tells me is unheard of), and I get the impression that he really likes what he does and cares about getting his patients well. I have not been the easiest patient, I know, but he continues to work with me *and* my therapist. In the past, I have been quickly diagnosed with bipolar disorder. It is a diagnosis I have never agreed with. Dr. Cluett, after spending a great deal of time with me, diagnosed me with M.D.D. and P.T.S.D., and, oh, these make *so* much more sense. Thank God for Dr. Cluett -- that's all I really have to say.

Very compassionate, understanding and not rushed.

Usually a psychiatrist asks a couple questions then writes you out a prescription. Dr. CLUETT takes the time to discuss things with you and.....LISTENS! I am so grateful.
