Specialties

Dr. Howard J Ilivicky 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.

Extremely lacking bed side manner

Smart man, but very arrogant and has little to no bed side manner, regardless of condition or affect on patient. Does not listen well at all or respect boundaries or show any genuine concern or empathy toward patients specifically. For a lack of better words, drunk on power.

Best psychiatrist in St. Louis

I've been seeing psychiatrist for ten years know on and off. Doctor ilivicky is by fare the best provider I've been under. Every appointment he asks me how I'm doing and if something isn't working he will try a different approach. I've even seen other doctors for periods, yet I'm always welcome back. Unlike most other psychiatrists I've seen, Dr. ilivicky actually takes notes and keeps track of treatments. I've had othe psychiatrists who have forgotten what meds I'm on, and even my name. He is soft spoken, empathetic, and kind. Unfortunately his staff can be less that desirable at the times, but still better than I've seen. Wait times can also drag on, but well worth the wait. He is definitely not a pill pusher, which I love. No matter how many other doctors I've seen, I always go back to him. He's literally the bestI've found so far. I highly recommend him.

Switching insurance to find someone else

I liked him the first time we met. But it did take 4 months to get an appointment, and scheduling followup appointments can be hard. Seemed smart, and a good guy. After a few appointments, I figured out I was wrong. Smart doesn't mean good. Probably good with people that think doctors are always right.

Established Patient

10+ years... he is kind, compassionate and very soft spoken. Not a pill pusher. For me he diagnosed my bi-polar disorder where others did not. He is encouraging when needed. I love him and refer him often.�
