Dr. Jennifer C Stelwagon has the following 4 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.
- Addiction Psychiatry
- Addiction Medicine
An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.
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.

Two years before I started seeing Dr. Stelwagon I called around to all the names I had gotten to try to find someone and she was the only one who seemed to really care and took the time to talk to me about my issues, even though I really wasn't ready to see someone. I remembered that when I decided to come in. My first impression was correct. I have been seeing her for 2 years now and she has been there for me through so much. She is very kind, not to mention really smart.
Finding Dr. Stelwagon was one of the best things that has happened to me, or at least to my mental health. She helped me to profoundly change my life. Dr. Stelwagon is caring, thoughtful and is more interested in using therapy than medication, but cautiously gave me medication when I needed it. She really has been there for me and I am very grateful for her.
So caring and great. She was so there for me when I needed it and at the same time did not pressure me for extra appointments when I didn't need it anymore. I can't say enough good things about this doctor (who, by the way uses her married name now-Stelwagon). I came from a terrible Dr. who over prescribed me and treated me horribly. Dr. Stelwagon was the total opposite.
