Specialties

Dr. Elzbieta E Gornisiewicz has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Doesn't listen to the patient.

Told her what medication worked for me and she insisted that Clonazapam was for seizures. She was rude and insulting.She said if I wanted to continue taking this medicine I would have to see a pyschitrist. That was insulting to me and anyone who has Epilepsy

She refused to see me because she "didn't want to fool with a car accident victim." Nice.

Great Dr...

I've been a patient of Dr. G for about 2 years now and she's treating my illness very well. I've seen vast improvement and I plan on staying with her. Also, she is just a wonderful person and has a great personality. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is in need of a good neurologist.

She just doesn't "get it"

At first, I liked Dr. G., she seemed really sweet. She may have "book" smarts, but she does not have the disease I have, so how can she sit there and tell me how I should or shouldn't feel? I try to explain my problems, but to no avail, all she has me do is touch my nose, walk across the floor etc. And she makes her diagnosis on this!!!??? Then has the nerve to tell me I "shouldn't feel" the way I do. I'm looking for another neurologist, one that UNDERSTANDS my feelings and who will actually LISTEN to me. Oak Ridge is limited on Neurologist, so they are ALL in the same group, so forget changing doctors in their tight group. I personally think ALL doctors should have to experience something similar to a persons disease, then maybe they'd "get it"?? And another thing, it takes MONTHS to even get an appointment with them.
