Specialties

Dr. Donald H Stanford 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.

Very good doctor and extremely caring and knowledgeable

Dr. Stanford is a highly educated and knowledgeable psychiatrist who is extremely helpful, supportive and skillful in controlling panic, anxiety and depression. I would gladly and have recommended him to others and I think he is one of the most compassionate and supportive psychiatrists in the Bay Area, and makes every effort to spend time with his patients and accommodate their schedules. Four stars and highly recommended.

I highly recommend Dr. Stanford

Dr. Stanford is caring and intuitive and has a quiet gift for listening. He doesn't medicate or overmedicate and prefers to use a light touch for those of us who do need meds. He helped me through a panic/depressive time period that had been largely caused by my being overmedicated by my previous MD. I highly recommend Dr. Stanford
