Specialties

Dr. Jill Shannahan 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.

Wonderful Psychiatrist

She really made me feel cared for - she took time to go through my history and my current complaints and followed up with me after prescribing medication.

Five Stars

Most helpful balance of encouragement and quiet suggestion; no sense of judgment, yet seemed honest and did not withhold opinion, especially when asked and even if there was disagreement. Willing to explain symptoms, behaviors, diagnoses. Attentive to medication issues without pushing meds. I did not feel that I was being fit to a diagnosis, rather that a diagnosis, or label, was secondary to helping me feeling that I was attaining some kind of stabiity and improvement in functioning. Perhaps most importantly, I believe Dr. Shannahan has fine sensibilities as well as an agreeable sense of humor.
