Specialties

Dr. Francois E Alouf 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 psychiatrist, pleasant demeanor and compassionate nature.

Dr. Alouf is a gifted psychiatrist. He has helped me more than anyone else I've gone to. He diagnosed my problems correctly and has me on a course of medications that have provided great relief. Also, he's a very nice man; kind, empathetic and funny.

I strongly recommend Dr. Alouf if you are in search of an understanding therapist to work with. He is reliable, listens well and has a great amount of sensitivity. He is a combination of intellect and heart. I have been working with him for since August, 2012 and have made improvements in terms of my ability to open up to another person. Although I believe in the curative aspects of psychotherapy, the process itself has not been easy for me...it's an awkward situation whereby I am narrating intimate issues to a stranger. However, his sense of pacing meaning allowing me to take my time is quite remarkable. His patience is enormous. After these many months, I have become quite attached to him and I was able to tell him what our therapeutic relationship has meant to me and this in and on itself is both healing and transforming for someone like me who is easily intimidated by closeness. If you are in the market searching after a failed therapeutic alliance or, not making progress in talk therapy, he maybe able to help. He has helped me!
