Specialties

Dr. Donald J Kushon has the following 4 specialties

  • Geriatric Psychiatry
  • Addiction Psychiatry
  • 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

One Star

Not seen in the office. Newly diagnosed COPD. On steroids. Dr. diagnosed me with bipolar disorder. Actually it was steroid induced psychosis. He missed that diagnosis. Once the steroids stopped and I recovered, I was fine. I am still fine after 2 years. I plan never to cross his door step again- ever. My family is aware of this also. I have never been so frightened and afraid of anyone or anyplace in my life. I never want to go through this again in my life. I also hope I will never need steroids again. If I do, I will know what is wrong, as well as my physicians.
