Specialties

Dr. Elizabeth E Gerard has the following 3 specialties

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • 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.

  • 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.

There is nobody better than Dr. Gerard. I've had neurologists all over the country at some of the most reputable institutions and she is BY FAR the best. She is patient, friendly, honest and tactful; and an excellent communicator. She goes well above and beyond what most doctors do and educates herself on each patient's unique condition, which is especially impressive when it would be easier to just provide another referral. Dr. Gerard is consistent in her diagnoses and advice and incredibly intelligent. I wish I could give her one million stars!

Wonderful doctor

Dr. Gerard is a blessing in my life. Patient, friendly, she CARES about her patients. She personally follows-up with me periodically, and since I switched to her, I have my seizures under control, for the first time in 15 years. Best doctor I know.

Four Stars

Good doc. Very knowledgable, but tries to pressure you into doing things her way. Only sees office patients about 15 hours/week. It used to be a lot easier to get in, but the waits are getting rediculous. Don't ever be her last appointment of the day - because she spends a lot of time with each patient, you'll be waiting a long time.

Saved my life

I was admitted with an immunological condition that caused an inflammation in my brain. Nobody diagnosed it, until Dr. Gerard was brought in. At that point I was in a comma and doctors warned my family that I would not survive. Dr. Gerard treated my condition and saved my life. My God bless this amazing doctor, caring human being.
