Dr. Joy L Kreeger has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

I love Dr. Kreeger. She started seeing me I was having depression and anxiety. I felt like I was in a black hole and couldn't claw my way out. She helped me get my life back. She not only is my medical doctor but also my counselor. She takes the time to listen and will give you extra time if needed. If Dr. Kreeger was not a provider covered by my insurance, I would definitely pay out-of-pocket for every visit. She won't coddle you and tell you what you "want to hear". She helps you realize how things are and what you can do to help yourself. I asked her one time why she didn't do reminder calls. She told me that if you want to get better you will make it a reminder to put the appointment on your calendar. She wants you to help yourself to get better. Boy that really hit home for me and she is so right!!! Dr. Kreeger is truly a blessing to me!!!!
My wife needs help. She was told by this doctor and her office the things she had to do to be seen. My wife went through all the physicals and had to go get very confidential paperwork to be able to see this doctor. For five months she did this to get in. This includes the bills we had to pay in accordance with her efforts. Five months. My wife thinking all is clear to be able to see the doctor so she happy she is finally going to get the help she needs. Now she sits here crying because she just called to set up first appointment and was told they're not taking new patients. This should be illegal and I'm going to find out if it is. Wouldn't recommend these people to anyone seriously needing help. Bet if they knew I was filthy rich they would accept my wife. Greed is what destroys this country.
Doctor Kreeger and I worked together for 4 years almost five. We stopped working because she left the place I was seeing her at. She really helped me out in so many ways never sugar coated was always spending longer times with me to talk giving me the chance to open up about what has happen to me in life. I really miss working with her I could tell her anything and knew she wouldn't judge me on one thing she may give me her option but never looked at me as a bad person. She is very strict about me having a boyfriend because she doesn't want me to be used or she doesn't want me to feel heart broken over nothing. She is very good at diagnosing and reading people. I also like the fact that she sticks up for me when my group home staff are wrong and will call people in my agency to get me the help and support I deserve. Working with her for four years has really made me learn a lot about myself and that not everyone else is out to get me. She has really helped me with paraneoa and realizes why I get like that. She really cares about her patients. My word to everyone if you don't want help don't try to work with her she only works with people who want to better themselves and move on from there mental illnesses or developmentally disabilities also called a dual diagnoses. She is only hard and tough because she cares if she wasn't she wouldn't spend over hour to two hours with a patient she knows her stuff and is not going to waste her time over someone who doesn't want help like she always tells me "IF A PERSON DOESNT WANT HELP THERE ISNT MUCH YOU CAN DO". And that is so true in the near future I hope to work with her again someday because everytime I seen her Ive learned something new about myself and that was for the better. Thanks Dr. Kreeger for all the support you've blessed me with I miss you a lot and hope your doing well. Good luck to you....
