Specialties

Dr. Gary L Stanton has the following 5 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • 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.

Doctor is good his receptionist should retire

Doctor Staton is very good however his receptionist should retire. I had an emergency once that the ER couldn't handle, my son called his office and his receptionist put him on hold. My son walked over to his office to discover that she had forgotten that he was on hold.

I've seen worse, I know better

Although charming and innocent, Gary is just another American MD. He thinks outside of the box, but explains very little to his patients. He is impressive with his knowledge of acupuncture, but works within a system that spends very little time with patients. Although trained more than any doctor at Emerson, I would rate him less for protecting the rich white men at MGH. He knows so much, he hardly knows what to do with it. He likes the quacking duck theory of medicine, but won't follow through with the treatment protocols he knows will work. He's a watch and wait kind of guy, as are most Emerson doctors. Too bad there is no disease that benefits from waiting years to diagnose and treat. Lets hope he's out in charge ahead of some of Emerson's other beauties. You can do worse. He was nice to my face, though and will treat patients with respect. that goes a long way in the Emerson world. Just don't expect a great deal of respect behind your back. office staff is over worked but friendlier than all the Emmerson doctors' staff assistants combined. He could be a good man in a corrupt environment. In all fairness, he accepts most insurance and medicaid and treats the poorest/sickest and least reimbursable crowd. You could do better.
