Specialties

Dr. Jay Synn 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.

Difficult to reach and poor in responding

Tried numerous times to reach Dr. Synn by phone and by letter concerning a medical issue under his care and never received the courtesy of any type of reply.. This was extremely poor professional service. I was the legal guardian of one of his patients who was going through a crisis.

Very understanding and helpful

I actually first saw Dr. Synn on the advice of a pharmacist after my GP over-medicated me trying to help me with panic attacks I had started experiencing. He said Dr. Synn would have more experience with the medications than my GP...made sense. Dr. Synn spent well over an hour at our first visit asking me questions designed to determine which medication, dosage, etc would be best for me. He was available the two times I called in a panic to help me understand the ins and outs of this dreadful disorder. It has been probably 10 years since I saw him, but the things I learned from him helped me bring my panic attacks to a manageable level and allowed me to continue doing the things I enjoy without fear.

I didn't like him. He acted like he knew it all and didn't listen to me. I left his office feeling horrible.
