Specialties

Dr. Louis J Dolinar 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.

WARNING: He will put your health in danger!

Nurse laid into me after 4 days of no sleep when I called because I needed more Xanax. Dr promised in beginning that if he took me off them he'd ease me off. I had seizures before from just that. Well they were mad that I wasn't taking MORE than prescribed. Breakfast, lunch, dinner....then take one for....my bed? It did help my situation but sometimes I just didn't need 4 or fell asleep before taking. This was called non-compliance by him and his nurse. Instead of being happy that I took less of this most addictive drug, they were mad. Went to Monday appointment and when I walked in, his face was already red. Like anger or prepared to fight. Well I put my empty bottle on his desk, said "compliance." Sat back then he went into a litany against me about taking meds. Then about THREE missed appointments two I called for, one i assumed was canceled because I refused the drug that one was for(to be blood tested ) but since I refused the medicine, there shouldn't have even been an appointment. Either way a patient with PTSD, Bi-Polar depression, borderline personality disorder, and panic attack disorder who was calm was left shaking from anger. I don't know how I controlled myself. Anyway that leads to now when I asked my psychologist if it would be possible to see another doctor. Just got an email from this pos Dolinar saying he is dropping me. That I should find someone soon because of the possible seizures. Obviously having an emotional reaction to my request, but here I sit now extremely nervous because I have to HURRY to find another doctor before I start having seizures after I run out. use this site or others to find better.

seems like a deep thinker. he does listen to you.

I have seen dr.dolinar a few times. He has helped my faith in a psychiatrist. I usually do not care for one. WhIle you speak to him I feel he listens. He is very experienced I feel he listens and cares more than you may think. He has to see you severall times and feel you out. Psyciatry is very complex. But he wants to help. I feel that 100%. Keep with him. Be honest with him. Let him help you. Also what impressed me _ talk staff that work with him. When they can enjoy working with him and respect him you have something.
