Specialties

Dr. Eric L Anderson 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.

Listened to what I had to say and respected my opinions in regards to my treatment. Was very personable and would remember unimportant details about my life. He definitely doesn't self-disclose much, but it doesn't take anything away for your treatment.

Great psychiatrist

It was hard for me to get up the nerve to see a shrink. Felt very comfortable with Dr. Anderson and what is more important to me is that he figured things out for me. Sometimes you just need to ask for help-worth it in the long run.

I finally found a doctor who not only cares, but knows what he is doing. He trained at Johns Hopkins-which was very reassuring. There were many days that I did not have hope-but thankfully that is in the past. I highly recommend this psychiatrist.
