Dr. Gebrehana W Zebro has the following 2 specialties
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.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I came to him with treatment-resistant depression as I had been suffering from depressive symptoms for almost 8 years with one brief hypomanic-type episode which had been attributed to a medication-induced mania by my psychiatrist at the time, which happened 7 years prior. I was really excited and looking forward to trying TMS therapy with him as medications had generally failed me. He promised that we'd do the TMS as soon as I changed my insurance as my insurance provider didn't cover the service and it is a costly service. So I changed my insurance about 7 months later, when I was finally able to, during open season, and then he said we wouldn't be able to do the TMS because of the fact that his diagnosis was bipolar disorder and the insurance company wouldn't cover TMS for bipolar as it's indicated for Major Depressive Disorder (my original diagnosis with my initial psychiatrist of 4 years). He said the only way we could do it was if I paid out of pocket, which could cost upwards of $15,000! I guess he was more interested in making money over treating my condition. I was highly disappointed as I had been looking forward to this treatment for seven months and he had given me false hope. I still don't understand why he did this. He made my insurance the problem initially, and then when I got that rectified, my disorder became the problem. I decided not to go back to him and have since been able to receive the treatment (covered by my insurance 100%) from a main provider of TMS treatments (TMS NeuroHealth Centers) giving them the same exact medical history as I had given him, including the "hypomanic" episode. I broke down in tears in his office as he had highly disappointed me and will NEVER return. In fact, I always left his office feeling more depressed and defeated. He didn't work for me.
Saw him 3 times for depression he prescribe me medicine. It's started to give me migraines my body did not like it. I gave the medicine 2 months to make sure I gave it a chance but it didn't help. Saw the doctor today and told him what was going on and wanted to try a different medication he told me NO. He argued with me when I was telling him it wasn't helping. Spent 5 minutes in his office didn't care how I was doing. Will definitely not go back
I don't know what these other people experienced but i am a health care professional and am also Bi-polar. When my insurance company refused my cost for seroquel, my other dr put me on resp. I freaked out on that medicine, completely in a stupor of just sitting there staring at the walls. My mom found Dr Zebro in his Alexandria office and he immediately saw me. He spent at least a half hour with me at each visit. He also informed me that i could apply for free seroquel and even filled out the paperwork and sent it for me. He gave me samples for one month until my free med arrived. He also added Lamictal and started at a small dose an increased it each week., I saw him evey week, and by the third month i was back to myself, and my bipolar was controlled. He also informed me of the risks and benefits of my meds, and really helped me alot. His office staff in Alexandria were nothing but absolutely professional and never had a problem with them. In short, Dr G saved my life, and saved me from checking myself into a hospital or suicide. There are always people who are going to be unhappy and write terrible things about MD's, but this one really helped me.
