Specialties

Dr. Marietta N Almazan 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.

WORST DOCTOR I HAVE EVER SEEN!

Hands down the worst doctor I have ever seen. Uncaring, insensitive, narcissistic, drug pusher, talks down to you, condescending, does not want you well - wants you on drugs. DO NOT SEE THIS DOCTOR!!

Tired of bad reviews

Dr Almazan is the best Dr i have experienced in my mental health journey. Coming out of Kaiser i went to Dr A along with a therapist tied to her office. Dr A keeps current on my blood ork while prescribing enough meds to control my condition (BPII). My first appointment with Dr A, she was met with shock at the high levels prescribed me by Kaiser. She immediately ramped me down and worked with me to find the point where my condition has been stable for years. Cycles that would have occured are non-existant. I am a high funtioning, director level that has come about only through the hard work and dedication Dr A has displayed. If you choose to visit Dr A, do not go in with a self diagnosis and allow the Dr to do her job. Dr A is a proven leader of her craft.

Abusive and Incompetent

She doesn't listen and her questions make no sense. If you insist on her attention or that she be clear, she loses it and quickly becomes abusive. I sought help for stress and anxiety and practically rant out of there feeling much worse.

Nightmare experience

Dr. Almazan will find you bi-polar even if you are not. My experience with her was a nightmare. I saw her for depression in 2001 and was quickly found by her to be bi-polar even though I had never experienced a manic episode. She put me on Lithium, Depakote and Respiridol. I became paranoid, extremely fearful, zombie like and had to move back in with my parents. Thankfully a psychiatrist I went to church with helped wean me off these drugs. I do suffer from depression which is why I went to her. I take Cymbalta for depression and have since late 2001. It has been a godsend. Please read her reviews online before seeing her. My experience with her is the norm.
