Dr. Margaret M Kotz has the following 3 specialties

  • Addiction Psychiatry
  • 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.

Dr Kotz should not be treating patients. Period. Her 'intake staff' are rude and disrespectful in every way. The person who did my initial interview should be dismissed from her position. She did not listen or believe anything I said. Thus, when I finally was granted an audience with the esteemed Dr. Kotz ,she had already formed her opinion, from her unknowledgable and disgraceful assistant. There was no point in continuing the appointment, as she never listened to my issues. Her knowledge of addiction is not current and her treatments are dated. I believe this has to do with her interests in other areas of healthcare, which are only to benefit her career....not the patients. I found her to be cold and unsympathetic. This is not what a person needs with these issues. As I said, she should not be treating patients clinically. Look me!

If your looking to get suboxone, do not go through dr. Kotz. She thinks shes god with her little prescription pad. Once your on suboxone the Dr controls your life literally. If you miss an AA meeting or any other oops your not getting your script. Oh yeah its costs thousands of dollars. Please reconsider your options. IMO its all about the money
