Specialties

Dr. Martha M Kato 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.

HORRIBLE ,DISTURBED AND INCOMPETENT

You know, they say the psychiatric profession attracts individuals who may have had psychiatric issues themselves. It all makes sense now. This woman ( I refuse to acknowledge her as a Doctor ) is obviously mentally ill. Where do I begin. Well, she is rude, cold, uncaring , insulting, degrading, arrogant, contradicting, incompetent and oblivious to the true purpose of her profession. Before I begin I ask the question: Why does the U of M Health System still employ her ? I guess the lawsuits will make dismissal happen eventually. I saw this woman to be treated for General Anxiety Disorder and have my medications adjusted. First words out of her mouth, " Why are you here". After explaining my disorder and current medication / treatment she proceeded to demean me and actually imply I might be faking my condition for attention ( mind you I have been suffering horrible anxiety attacks and panic attacks that have left me debilitated ). I complained about my breathing issues ( which is common with anxiety ) and she dismissed these issues and suggested I see a Pulmonologist and then went on to say I could stop breathing and die if I didn't. Brilliant , she knows nothing of my medical history other than I have shortness of breath from anxiety and phobia due to this condition and suggests I could die......let's see.... The rolling of the eyes......telling me I was driving her crazy with my warranted questions about my condition, Then the strange contradictions....She advised that my anxiety was probably being caused by my Prosaic use..? I never used meds in my life until I started having anxiety and panic attacks.....then after giving me this advice she advises that I continue with a higher Prosaic use.,,So, Prosaic is causing anxiety for me and she is advising me to stay on a higher dose ?.....on and on.....statements which make no sense....then she states I have no anxiety and proceeds to prescribe medication for anxiety......I suspect this woman is medicated herself and has no business treating patients. She is a danger to the community. My next inquires are to my attorney, proper authorities and The Miami Herald. A good investigator should be able to get to the bottom of this. God knows what horror stories he / she will find...I practically ran to the elevator away from that woman. And by the way according to the other reviews I read on Vitals, I am definitely not alone in having been caused great harm by this woman.
