Specialties

Dr. James Slovak 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.

  • Neurology

One Star

While I like Dr. Slovak as a person he was a mess as a clinician. Here is a man who hired my sister as a secretary (a former patient of his) while I was a current patient. He took on close friends of mine as patients and discussed them in my sessions and me in theirs. We had a few occasions at the same bar drinking together while I and the aforementioned friend were both under his care. His chronic lateness is the least of his worries. I'm writing this review 20 years later. Like Bill Cosby's victims it's never too late to come forward with your story to prevent another from suffering the same abuse. You'll see my rating isn't entirely negative. There were good moments, they just are clouded by some incredibly bad judgement on the doctor's part. Just find someone else.

Does not give me any updates on my child's progress. Always a wait time. Demands payment at the time of visit no matter what the circumstances.
