  • 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.

Excellent!

Dr. Santana (and his staff) is through and cares about helping his patients. I had Migrane headaches for years, Dr. Santana worked with me and adjusted medications reducing Migraines to almost 0%.

The best at what he does

But his office staff leave a lot to be desired. They WILL NOT go out of their way to assist with insurances or prescriptions...unless THEY need to be paid. Their words: "We don't have the staff to deal with every insurance agancy out there." HUH? I asked, "So you're telling me you are understaffed?" Her reply, "Yes". I am currently looking for a new neurologist as I write this because his office is "understaffed". I don't need the extra stress and pressures of doing the work that EVERY other doctor's office does.
