Specialties

Dr. Gregory A Jicha 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.

an outstanding doctor

Dr. Jicha is a competent, considerate, compassionate, brisk and straightforward doctor. When you need him, he's really there. We called about a possible change to a prescription, explained the questions we had to his nurse, and were astonished that Dr. Jicha himself called us back, began discussing our questions as if he had taken our earlier call himself (we didn't have to start from scratch!), took into consideration an evaluation by our physical therapist and said he agreed with that evaluation (that alone is extraordinary; most MDs regard any care provider who doesn't have MD after his/her name as beneath notice and probably incompetent). Dr. Jicha is a recognized authority and a researcher in the field of dementia, so he is eminently qualified to diagnose and treat any problem in that area of medicine. We are very lucky to have found him, and would recommend him to anyone with absolute confidence in his skill, competence, and experience.
