Specialties

Dr. Kenneth O Jobson 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.

Incredible.

My 1st appointment was after 3 years of other Dr.'s failed attempts to get me stabilized with meds for bipolar. From the very beginning he put together a mix that changed my life for the better. That was 11 years ago and I am just as grateful now as I was then. It's normal to need adjustments over time and it always goes well.

Highly effective doctor and staff.

Dr. Jobson has improved my quality of life a hundred-fold by understanding me and my behavior better than I did myself. When I knew there was something "wrong with me", I had no idea what it was, so how could I describe it to anyone else? By engaging in a discussion with me, and taking two simple, quick tests, he was able to begin helping me. From his extensive experience, he was able to prescribe medicine that worked for me without having to wait 4-6 weeks for it to take effect. And he helped me to understand that there is nothing "wrong with me". The chemistry in my brain works a little differently than the majority of people, but I am not without company in this difference. With understanding comes acceptance, compassion, and appreciation for one's self. Dr. Jobson has changed to trajectory of my life and I will be forever grateful to him and his staff.
