Specialties

Dr. Gust T Spenos 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.

Horrible, Incompetent Doctor!!

My Mom has been seeing him since 2014 and he has not done a new brain scan since then (he said he was going to do one over a 2 years ago). Patient wait time is much, much longer than the actual time he spends with patients. Last spring at my Mom's appointment he was in the room 10 to 15 minutes tops. The only thing he was concerned about was her weight. My Dad and I told him and his wife that my mom's condition was worsening and he did not seem to care nor did he do anything to help her. All he does for her is prescribe medications. One medication took over a year and a half to finally get filled. The pharmacy told my Dad that Spenos needed to fill out paperwork or something so the prescription could be filled. My Dad relayed this information to Spenos (at least 3 different office visits) and Spenos keep telling my Dad that it was an issue with the pharmacy. Finally this past Saturday the prescription was filled after over a year and a half of trying to get it filled. In the meantime my Mom is having more and more and more symptoms of Dementia.She could have used that medication a year and a half ago, maybe her symptoms would not be as bad as they currently are. I am in the process of finding my Mom a competent doctor that actually cares and will actually do something to help my Mom.

Wonderful doctor

Dr. Spenos has the best attitude I've ever experienced with a doctor. He's fun but very professional and he's very accurate. He's a great doctor and I recommend him to anyone who's looking for a neurologist.

Incompetent

After receiving several phone calls calling my son and myself by the wrong name we received a "nothing's wrong with him" diagnosis on our son only to take him elsewhere and found out he has a traumatic injury, less than 5% of his short term memory, among many other things that will make a vast difference in his life because of the TBI. No apologies were made by staff for calling us by the wrong name. I would not recommend the office or the doctor to anyone.
