Specialties

Dr. Ganana Tesfa 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.

Great on paper

I am a medical scribe and work with dozens of doctors including specialists on a regular basis. I went to doctor Tesfa because i have been having episodes where i blackout and then have a severe headache quickly following it. Dr. Tesfa at first wrote it off as an extremely rare type of migraine (which when I researched and asked some other physicians found out that i didn't have any symptoms of) and prescribed two different migraine medicines to try. Both of the medicines made my symptoms worse (especially the frequency of the episodes), but one slightly improved the headache. I informed him of the worsening symptoms, and he thought it would be smart to go ahead and write a whole script for the medication that makes me blackout more. My family doctor removed all driving privileges from me. I asked for a work note from this doctor and he said i should return to work and driving "immediately." I just don't think driving when you are spontaneously blacking out is a good idea. I also don't think working in an emergency room where patients rely on my consistency and accuracy is a very good idea. In short, this doctor has shown little care for my health and has yet to give me any idea of what is really going on. I believe due to my family history i probably have epilepsy. However, I will be seeking out a different neurologist to figure out my issue. His office staff is disorganized and discourteous. They made a billing error and ended up charging me an extra 100$ in the end. All the girls behind the desk thought it was funny and started laughing at this. After waiting over an hour for my appointment (during which every patient in the waiting room was subject to the staff's inappropriate laughter and hoots and hollers, which I am sure the patients with neuropathic pain really enjoyed listening to), dealing with a doctor who has terrible bedside manner and is condescending, and getting a bogus diagnosis I was simply not as tickled as they were. Like I said before, I have worked with dozens of doctors, but I have never worked with such an incompetent or inconsiderate doctor.

Definitely thumbs up

Dr Tesfa knows his stuff, takes the time to listen, and obviously cares. Both my wife and I have had nothing but excellent treatment from him and from his office staff for several years. I suppose there will always be whiners, particularly when anonymous feedback is an option. I would recommend Dr Tesfa to anyone looking for medical professional with skill, engagement, and a refreshing sense of humor. Simple as that.
