Dr. Joseph P Hogan has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
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.
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.

I had run the gambit from my general practioner, to the ER, to an orthopedic surgeon, and back... Inhave a pinched nerve in my lower back which has caused numbness and horrible pain in my left thigh..I truly have never felt, the way I do after this experience, that the medical field to this point had abandoned me..NO help for pain given the crack down on opioids...was,told in the ER to take Tylenol which is like drinking water to me...upon the advice of my daughter, who is an RN, I decided to see a Neurologist..I saw Dr, Hogan..as far as I'm concerned, he saved me from this horrible experience...he was thorough, he listened, he put me on the right path to recovery...I feel better in his care than I have for two months...his advice and care has been excellent..I'm sorry others have not had the same experience with Dr. Hogan that I have had..I'm so very grateful for him...
I just read most of the reviews. Its true that Dr. Hogan does not have the welcoming bedside manner that we have become used to wanting. We were told by my husbands referring doctor that Dr.Hogan can be a bit unusual this way. BUT...with most highly intelligent people you find they lack some people skills. Over the course of 2 years, we have come to know him as a caring doctor who knows his business. My recommendation is to give someone more than 1 office visit before judging.
On top of Dr Hogan ALWAYS being rude, he stormed out of my appt and came in with a letter that he went to type up when he could have been addressing my concerns as a patient, stating that I terminated our appt and he would no longer treat me as a patient. He scared my 3 year old daughter to the point that she started crying. Rude, scary, mean and unprofessional doctor. He shouldn't be allowed to interact with people at all with his nasty demeanor,
Dr. Hogan is a very rude neurologist with extremely poor bedside manner. He didn't take the time to follow up on my labs, scans or tests in relation to my my diagnosis. He seems to enjoy prescribing meds without looking into the cause of the issue. He doesn't answer my questions about the condition he diagnosed me with and seem to have anger and frustration issues...on top of honesty issues. Horrible doctor!!!!
