Specialties

Dr. Jon S Poling has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Dr Poling spent less than five minutes with me as a " fill in" for a follow up appointment of which they failed to tell me my dr would be out. He barely looked at me, asked 2 questions, sent me out for follow up lab work then billed me for a comprehensive examination.

Never use this doctor

He looked at my MRI's between 3 or 4 years. He said I had several white spots that were 'normal' for people aging. Even on the last one . the lesion has spread. He told me, he had another person to look at MRI also. Nothing to do or he did not have the tools. Never offered to send me to another doctor...Now I find out the lesions are causing pain on left side of my head and neck.. I have had pain for 23 yrs.. This man will let you die!!
