Specialties

Dr. Mark K Poff 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.

Respectful, Accurate & Prompt

Dr. Poff was was accurate with diagnosing my illness and made excellent recommendations for meds and additional options to assist me with treating my illness so that medication may not be needed in the near future. Each visit he was prompt to begin and end our sessions. I have already recommended Dr. Poff to someone within my family and they are making excellent progress!

Very poor bedside manner

This Dr has a very poro beside manner. He seems very nervous an aggitated most of the time and makes me feel very uncomfortable. He nods his head looking down writing saying nothing, very little eye contact. Then writes you a prescription and says see you in 4 weeks. I had a very bad reaction to the medication he gave me and almost had to go to the hospital. I do not recommend this Dr.
