Specialties

Dr. Glenn R Yank 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.

He saved my life.

He has been my psychiatrist for 15 years. He has stabilized my BiPolar Disorder and continues to control and monitor my medication. I dread the day when he retires.

First class doctor

Dr. Yank is first class! His diagnostic skills are spot on. He is patient and listens to what you have to say. He treats with both therapy and medication if needed. He has helped me tremendously. I highly recommend him. Sometimes there is a wait, but well worth it.

Still Awesome After 4-5 Years of Seeing Dr. Yank

The Family Therapy Center is very nice. Almost 40 years old and have been going to psychiatrists for years. I've been around, too, so what I'm saying is I have experiences from different psychiatrists- in the military, Texas, North Carolina, Florida, and Tennessee. Anyway, I've been going there for between 4-5 years. My psychiatrist, I researched before even going. He's the best psychiatrist I've ever encountered, not to mention extremely professional and good-hearted. That doesn't mean he always says what I want to hear because that wouldn't be helpful, right? However, he (Dr. Glenn Yank), is extremely intelligent, Harvard Educated, worked at Vanderbilt, and knows psychiatry and pharmacology like the back of his hand. Put your trust in him if you need a psychiatrist. Anyone that can listen to me for 4-5 years and put up with my severe psychological issues and have my medicine so correct that I am extremely stable is a God send. Thank you to him for giving his life to helping others. I'm a social worker myself and could not handle other people's problems.....he knows what he's doing and has dedicated his life to helping others. You must GET TO KNOW his pattern and understand...which is difficult for some, even me at first. Dr. Yank is very analytical, sometimes it seems he is being cold when he is not. He is very busy and gets very tired and he does dedicate his time to you when you are there, regardless. His demeanor is not "Southern". He is from the North but is still nice, just not "Southernly" which some people may be taken aback by this. His demeanor is also due to his very high level of professionalism. Remember, he is working with people with mental illness. If you smile too much or are too nice, it does mess up the effectiveness of the patient appointment. Doctors are able to diagnose and help their patients by what they observe in their client, not only what the client tells them. If they just went by one variable, it would not be correct. When dealing with personality disorders, among other mental illnesses, small things such as a smile, anything, can be misperceived by the patient as something else. I've been living in Columbia for 7 years and I'm not from Tennessee. The front desk staff is pretty good and the waiting room is nice, plenty of comfort and reading materials. I expected a lot of Southern hospitality when I moved here (I'm from North Carolina). However, there are a lot of professional places I've been in the area that the native people are not very inviting....so, the staff at the front desk is pretty nice to me. A few others on a similar site thought otherwise....Due to changes with insurance companies, doctors and counselors have to book everyone a certain amount of time apart from each other to pay the bills. The costs of being these professionals is unseen to many (that's a whole other story, look into it...). That being said, sometimes patients run over their allotted time and there is an extra wait. I'd rather have to wait a little longer and still be alive than go to an in-and-out place and not be taken good care of....I feel safe here.

Brilliant, Exceptional Expert on Bipolar & Depression

Dr. Yank spends 45min with you your first visit (unheard of with most Psychiatrics)to determine the proper diagnosis. He also attends seminars regarding new medicines and stays abreast on current information for his practice. He is THE BEST in MIDDLE TN area. His wait times lag,however this is attributed to his dedication he spends with each patient to ensure they are on the correct medication/therapy and they are able to function in society. Best MD I have ever had the pleasure of helping me.
