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.

    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.

What a Quack

Her Professionalism was not even worth the paper her licenses was written on. You mean they still allow her to practice in the United States. Her bedside matter is nil. Doctors like her should be banned from the human race. I just want to push her parents down for continuing with this pregnancy. She will and have did anything for money. Shame on you undoctor. This shows that anyone can get a license to practice non medical procedures. I salute you with my hand in my pocket. QUACK

One Star

Do not get involved with this place, was booked to have a nerve test. Seen Dr who was on her phone and took several minutes before asking my name etc. Had to pay $20:00 co-pay when I saw the Dr, then a $20:00 co-pay to have the nerve test. The Dr did not do the nerve test, but one of the office workers. I asked to see the Dr to have my test results, they told me I needed to make an appointment for the results (yet another $20:00) I turned up for my test 15 minutes early, and was told that the Dr was in the Lodi office. This office is completely worthless, and I recommend that you save your time and money, and do has I did and tell them to shove it
