Specialties

Dr. Ellen M Rotblatt 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.

Don't get sucked in

She doesn't take insurance, charges a very high rate, and even thinks you should pay her for her "research" when you aren't there. This quickly adds up to thousands and thousands of dollars that you "owe" her, and she demands you pay up before you get the benefit of any of her "research" into your condition. If you don't pay the ridiculous charges, she will go to the ends of the earth to ruin your credit. It's extortion, really.

Dr Rotblatt was instantly caring, compassionate, and involved me in the treatment at my first appointment.She is thorough and knows that the body and mind work together, thus questions why I am taking meds from primary care and what causes the symptoms, i.e. am I having the cause treated or just the symptom.She is now suggesting a gradual phase out of my depression meds, which is scary, but I have her as my support if that doesn't work, so I'll give it a try.She is not shrinky, unapproachable and secret like I had come to expect of Psychiatrists. She has no magic wands, just consistent capable care.

blames the patient

Dr. Rotblatt does not take insurance and does a lot of unorthodox testing, like checking for common vitamin deficiencies, routine lab work, and very expensive DNA testing, which are all very expensive. If that sounds OK to you, then after about five appointments when she is still having you come in for three hour sessions ($150 an hour) and then flatly refuses to give you any insight into what all the testing means specifically to you, and she tells you that you haven't paid enough yet to be privy to the information in her head, well, then you might feel differently. I suppose if you have an endless supply of money, time, and patience and want to indulge yourself, who knows, maybe there is an endpoint at which you might learn something useful. I didn't.Oh, and then of course it was all my fault.Just say no.
