Specialties

Dr. Edward F Caruso has the following 3 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.

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

COMPETENT, MOODY

I was again WAS patient of Dr. Caruso until he left the Phillipsburg area a few years ago. Went to another provider but when learned he was back in Bloomsbury changed back to Dr. Caruso as he does have a great deal of knowledge and did help me through a difficult time in my life. However, due to an unfortunate turn of events, I chose to leave this time. Looses information and records. If you have insurance, find out from your insurance provider if he is in-network and what rate he agreed to with the insurance carrier!

Geriatric and General Psychiatrist

I am the person to whom these comments have been written. I am not an internist as the info on top says. Patients generally get the full time allotted for each appointment and when on time that is 15 minutes for followup and 30 minutes for new patients. I take insurance so I have to make money in volume and work long, hard hours to do that. Many psychiatrists who actually do not care as much about patients do not take insurance and charge patients much higher fees than insurance companies pay. These doctors spend more time with each client but will charge 2-3 x what an insurance company will pay and the patient will pay the full cost. I work in many different situations and facilities: assisted living, nursing homes, office practice in bridgewater and hospital setting and have a wealth of experience and can impart that knowledge in practice, but I do have to get information in each session, so may redirect at times because patients can't really have "therapy" in 15 minute sessions. I am board certified in general and geriatric psychiatry and have a lot of experience in adolescent psychiatry, as well as management (medical director, chief of psychiatry, APN collaboration).

Awful

He rushed the appointment, didn't bother to listen to what I have to say. Felt like he didn't care at all. Not going back to him that's for sure.

Worst doctor I have ever seen

This guy is just plain awful. Do not go to him. The only plus is there is little wait time, but that's because he stinks. He is rude and doesn't seem to know what he is doing.

Dr. Caruso is very knowledgabe about the needs of a patient with mental illness. He is very caring, and he shows a genuine interest in your well-being. If I leave a message on his voicemai, he always returns the call, and promptly. He has called me several times regarding prescriptions and a personal matter. I highly recommend Dr. Caruso.
