Specialties

Dr. Iris M Vivas 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.

. No tomaba mis pastillas, Fui hospitalizada en contra de mi voluntad, no cuidaba mi Diabetes y he podido desde hace 4 años estabilizar mi condición, no he vuelto a ir a un hospital y he podido otra vez funcionar. La Dra es de Puerto Rico muy buena. Si se preocupa por sus pacientes.

I see Dr. Vivas at Memorial Regional Hospital, Fl-she is very good. Attentive, honest, provided me with options and educated me about my illness. She is not like other psychiatrists that don't listen and just give you a prescription.

one of a kind, easy to talk with, good listener and good advises. Helped me to go back to work, take care of my family and myself. I used to see her for medications and therapy for depression because of my Lupus. I went to multiple psychiatrist and everyone added me crazy medications. Dr Vivas knew how to handle my condition. Great psychiatrist.
