Dr. Joseph D Gaspari has the following 3 specialties

  • Addiction Psychiatry
  • 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. Gaspari was incredibly helpful to me 26 years ago before the internet existed. He was a quality person then and I have no reason to believe that has changed in the past 2 decades.

Lacks Empathy

His prices are reasonable given his level of experience. However, he lacks empathy, and delivers his opinions in a highly judgmental spirit. His advice often references his other patients, which he paints in a less-then-compassionate light. He spends more time talking about his otter patients and colleagues than actually listening, and he interrupts frequently. I left his office feeling worse than when I came in.

He took me as his patient having gone through a very difficult ordeal. I could not believe he called me back after what I put him through. I'm just getting to know him. He has a pager whenever you really need him. When I had catraisties and he would get back to me he doesn't say much but is there for you. I think his treatment as a psycolanylist there is a lot of distance in your work w him. Caring but it's you that works on you.
