Specialties

Dr. Joshua B Nathan 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.

Criticized former providers and belittled other healthcare providers like primary care physicians in their managment of behavioral and mood disorders. Disagreed with prior diagnosis yet still prescribed medications that treated same diagnosis he denied I had. Very narrow minded and brought preconceived ideas into interview not allowing him to best take care of the patient...you! If you have a choice request someone else

Extemely condescending and judgemental. Uses soft tone voice to appear empathetic yet I felt no compassion. Talks down to you like you are uneducated. Don't waste your time find a different provider. Someone who actually cares

Very insightful about advice with priorities for school/work/career/family/hobbies while one is also under the care of a head doctor (or so they call them nowadays)with a life. I would recommend this doctor to anyone, who needs a life/needs to get back on track/needs to set priorities right/needs to make amends with attitude conditions. He is ambiguous about health insurance so I suggest better administrative office staffing. In general, he is a pretty well-studied doctor (maybe attentive or so, unlike many I've met across the country).
