Dr. Janet M Chance has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

I was recently diagnosed with Parkinson's by a polite, but somewhat indifferent neurologist who gave me little hope or understanding. Dr. Chance, on the other hand, brings a unique, personal touch when dealing with her patients. I have never been invited to sit in a doctor's private office to discuss my symptoms--let alone my fears. Dr. Chance provides that opportunity, along with that rare ability to answer questions in terms the average person can understand. This not only helps provide clarity, but encourages hope and confidence that no matter what the future brings, she will be there for you. P.S. Her photo should be updated; she has glorious silver hair now.
I have Parkinson's Disease and have had to search for months to find a doctor with knowledge of the illness. I heard of Dr.Chance and had to wait 3 months to get in to see her. I am so glad I did. SHe is wonderful. IT is a joy to find a doctor who really cares and listens to you.At her office you are not a number or blank face sittinhg in the waiting room. IT is very evident that she is a master of this disease, She can laugh with you and is very thorough. I just hope she will be accessible when needed. Her patient list is long.
