Specialties

Dr. Eli S Chesen has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Hope

Dr. Chesen is a thorough investigator. He asked questions for over an hour and gave me a diagnosis which time and research and experience have confirmed. My depression and propensity to medicate with alcohol have diminished and are beginning to disappear. What a miracle. He identified a mood disorder and his suggested treatments have my mood going from bleak depression to partly sunny to mostly sunny on most days, and I have hope that with continued treatment I'll get many warm sunshiny days--so much better than the dark nuclear-fall-out days I've had for two years.

One Star

I was evaluated by this Dr. for a workman's comp case. Hired by the insurance company to do an assessment of my mental health following a severe back injury that was not getting better despite 3 surgeries. He is a paid assassin for insurance companies. His report was totally skewed, inaccurate, and not truthful. he manipulates facts to make the patient look bad. he has no regard for what damage he causes to families when he gives his "opinion" about people. He claimed there was no medical evidence I my case to support why I wasn't getting better and I would not get better until my case reached a settlement. when in fact at the time of his interview with me I had a huge herniation to my disk again and required a fourth surgery. he spent a total of maybe 90 minutes with me, never making eye contact and tapping away on his computer. This guy is a total clown!!

To old to practice medicine

To old to be practicing medicine not up on current medications. Just gives you whatever and leaves you hanging.
