Specialties

Dr. Mark S Van Houten has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

probably should see another neurologist

It is time for this physician to retire or go back to school. He is no longer an "up-to-date" practicing neurologist , in my opinion.

Real bad

I've gone to this doctor three times and he goes over the same speal and has ZERO PERSONNAL SKILLS. I asked him a few questions about my medical issues and he is completely oblivious. SEE ANOTHER DOCTOR THAN THIS ONE!

Find another doctor!

This man should never work with humans. He is a loose cannon with no common sense or sensibility. Treated my father and family with zero respect and discretion. I should have taken heed of the previous comments regarding this man. Don't go!

Waste of time

This doctor should retire. He does not like to treat Alzheimer's clients but rather than say so, treats them poorly and misdiagnoses them. Although he clearly saw atrophy of the brain in an MRI, he read the PET scan of my sister as normal and told her she had no neurological disease and should go for counseling to see why her memory is poor. TOTAL WASTE OF TIME, $$.
