Specialties

Dr. George E Tesar 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.

Uninterested, not helpful

I was so disappointed and hurt by Tesar's attitude I never went back to that department again. I am a patient with epilepsy, and supposedly Tesar's specialty is psychiatric components of epilepsy. (I also have diagnosed PTSD, dissociative disorder, severe anxiety, severe depression). I had to seem him for a referral to a psychiatrist (not him). He was the biggest disappointment--treated me dismissively, not worth his time, did not even look at me, talked to my husband about travel. I thought Cleveland Clinic=high class care. Wasn't my experience.

Sorry, but this is my honest opinion.

No, I would not recommend this doctor to a friend. My neurologist recommended me to the Psychiatry department, because these two departments supposedly work cooperatively. Tesar's attitude toward me was condescending and dismissive. He gave me the impression I was wasting his time. I thought these people were supposed to help patients, and listen to the patient's concerns, and then make a recommendation for care. I can't believe there is not one doctor in the psychiatry department (not Tesar) who couldn't help me with my diagnosed DID and PTSD.
