Dr. Elena Z Sarmiento 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.

This doctor should not be practicing any medicine

This doctor wrote untrue statements in my medical records. At no time did I threaten to harm myself or anyone else. All she would do is ask me over and over again "and how does that make you feel?" I have been to a legitimate psychiatrist before and he did not sit there and ask me the same stupid question over and over. And when she asked me how I was I told her I was p/o because I didn't belong in there in the first place! I wasn't threatening to harm myself or anyone else which is the whole point of the Baker Act. And telling my mom that someone hacked into my satellite through my insecure router is not me thinking the tv is talking to me!!! Also, my abusive husband had been threatening to have me committed, breaking into the house he no longer lived in, and stalking me by asking my daughter where we were all the time!

Terrible doctor

This woman should be sent back to her country of origin! She has a terrible attitude and takes advantage of the mentally ill. She degrades patients and certainly has no compassion at all. I would not recommend to anyone!

This Doctor has no bedside manner whatsoever, makes fun of clients, is very rude and it sickens me that this woman is still practicing, Above the survey asks questions with star ratings and I gave none for any of them, she makes clients feel very uncomfortable and uneasy and downgrades them and laughs, it is horrendous and sad that someone like this is in psychiatry, a field where compassion and understanding are a must, she lacks any of it and I'm quite shocked that her license has not yet been revoked, I wouldn't recommend her to anyone, she causes more harm than good. It asked that I put a star rating on one of the questions, so I had to but she does not even get one in my opinion along with other people who have opinions on this woman who prides herself as a doctor,she is very judgemental and emotionally and verbally abusive towards clients.
