Specialties

Dr. John A Detre 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.

Dr. Detre is definitely the doctor that you want to see if you are in need of the neurological care that he offers!

They asked me to write a few specific descriptions and experiences about being a patient with neurological disorders. I actually found it a bit of a challenge to put into words, but I felt that, to do what he has always been willing to do for me, I would at least write a "little" something. After all, I don't think that many of us appreciate all of the good that some physicians do for us, especially the few that do it gladly. To be completely honest, there have been times when I considered finding a different neurologist. However, after careful consideration regarding this issue, wiser medical professionals and consultation with intelligent friends, it became clear to me, friends, professors, colleagues, family, and my boss that my behavior needed to change with the new diagnosis that I found myself facing. It was hard to accept at first and no one would want to do something like stop drinking AT ALL. It was not until later that I truly understood the effect that he had on my life. And, he still with that diagnosis and he still does. As does, his wonderful receptionist Debbie!I hope that he is able to help someones life as much as he has helped mine.
