Specialties

Dr. George C Chow has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

\esDrtDR nuerologist I have ever encountered

He is kind, compassionate, and really on the ball. I would never have known that I had a brain tumor if I had seen Dr. Chow for an unrelated problem. He found the tumor and it was resolved quickly and thouroughly

Five Stars

My first introduction to Dr. Chow was in the emergency room and I was very impressed with his patience, his attention to details and his caring attitude.The follow-up appointment in his office as just as impressive. He took his time and got a complete history and asked many questions about my condition. He also took the time to explain the many treatment options and the benefits.I am very pleased with every aspect of Dr. Chow's treatment.
