Specialties

Dr. Eward Ratush 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.

Excellent Doctor and staff

this physician is excellent, understanding and compassionate. I saw him when I was at my lowest and he essentially saved me, and I continue to see him now. The staff is amazing (Vera) and they are equally compassionate and attentive, I would recommend him to anyone.

Excellent psychiatrist

Dr. Ratush has been my psychiatrist for nearly three years. He got me through a major recovery, and his ongoing treatment has been exceptional. I feel fortunate to have him as my doctor.

This is about reception and their appointment confirmation policy!

This is not about Dr. Ratush, but rather his receptionist and their appointment confirmation policy. I made an appointment with Dr. Ratush's office a week ago via ZocDoc. They called me the day before the appointment in the late afternoon to confirm the appointment, but I missed the call since I was at work. By the time I noticed the missed call about hour later and called back to confirm, the office was closed and I left a message to confirm. They called again 2 hours before my appointment to confirm my insurance info. After I confirmed it, they then told me they have to see if they have a different time available, because I did not confirm in time and I have lost my appointment slot! When I said I called and left a message yesterday, the very rude lady on the other end said they needed to speak to me directly to confirm it, and that they attempted to contact me but I did not respond! I cannot believe they are trying to put the blame on me for "not responding in time", when they have given me less than an hour to get back to them! If they needed to speak to me directly, they need to give at least 24 hour notice. This is just unacceptable. The receptionist was very rude and the way they just canceled my appointment because they did not contact me early enough and give me enough time to call back is unbelievable. They've waste a lot of my time, and I will never use this doctor.
