Specialties

Dr. George A Blair Jr 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.

Blair's review

Dr. George Blair's help has been a lifesaver for myself. I don't care what his critics say, he has always been there for me. I've been with him for years, and I go out of my way to insure that he will be available for me. He has bent over backwards to help me. We have worked hard to find the correct combination of meds for myself. I have risen from the ashes of being in a lock-down mental institution to a sober, productive member of society. I am even getting back into the workforce after being on disability for years! He listens to my input, and we work together as a team. He is willing to take chances with me in terms of medications, and, after years of experimenting, have found the correct combination. I used to self- medicate with illicit drugs and alcohol, and through his help, have gotten sober and stable. I, personally, thought I was hopeless, and I am at a point where I can resume to being a productive member of society. I go out of my way to insure that he will continue to work with me. I owe this man a debt of gratitude.

A complete joke of a doctor!

Was referred by my current psychiatrist as I needed someone 'in network'. Left two messages on voicemail explaining that I was referred by Dr. Blair's colleague. No phone call back! No phone call to say "I am not taking new patients" or "I have retired" or ANYTHING. This is barely acceptable from an auto mechanic but a psychiatrist has an obligation to at least return a voicemail. I will be leaving one final voicemail to let him know what I think!
