Specialties

Dr. James Jura has the following 3 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.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Clinical Psychology

    A psychologist is someone who specializes in the study of the mind, as well as human behavior. Psychologists sometimes focus on certain types of people or certain age ranges.

Good doctor

Dr jura is not only an excellent doctor- I believe he wants to help people more that make lots of money like most other doctors. I am a senior citizen and have seen many doctors and in my opinion he is at the top of the list.

One Star

I told him my head meds where wrong, to which he asked if I had guns. When I laughed he rattled on for 30 minutes and asked if he could call my parents in to put locks in the triggers. My father has worked in the Auto industry since before I was born. When a customer comes to him about brake problems, he does not obsess over whether a customer takes 4 way stops. He diagnosis the brakes. Dr Jura wasted my time at the worst time possible.
