Specialties

Dr. Edward L Chua 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.

I have worked with Dr Chua for 19 years. He always spends the time I need. He has been a life saver through times where I don't think I would have survived.

Review

Twenty five years ago, he wrongly diagnosed me with a serious mental health issue. Of which, I never had nor to this day. Because of him, I have had to unwind from all the prescriptions I have been given. My system has been like a medical disposal. For an accumulation of traumas that brought me to him, he never once sent me to a therapist. I have since had to deal with all the stigma from employers, medical staff and family. I would strongly advise finding another doctor and running the other way. Your life depends on it.

Seriously unprofessional

Dr. Chua started talking to me about the private life of another doctor that I had seen. I was very uncomfortable with this and wondered who he was talking about to me.
