Specialties

Dr. Martha W St John 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.

Terrible Receptionist

The receptionist NEVER answers the main phone and the voicemail says they will return your call by the end of the following business day. What?! They can't be that busy! When I called a secondary number on their website, someone answered but said it was only for their TMS treatments. Apparently even though it is in the same office, they can't communicate to each other that someone is on the phone. I don't mind being put on hold. After waiting 30+ hours to get a call back, I finally called again, of course, with no answer. I called the other TMS line just so I could talk to someone and that lady argued with me again about what number to call until she finally walked to get the actually receptionist on the phone. After all the nonsense, I find out that they are not accepting new patients, even though my insurance's website says they are. When I suggested that they put that on their website the receptionist said it would take too much time to do that monthly. Really?! An update once a month?! I guess everything is slow moving over there. I would love to see the doctor. She seems great, but that receptionist is just so rude! I would think the receptionist for a psychiatrist would be a lot more courteous since you're dealing with people that have some pretty serious mental issues. I don't even think it is worth trying next month to see if there are any openings. Shame.

Three Stars

Both my husband and I see Dr St John. We really love her. Her office staff is another story. Not nice at all. Also, they just started doing more "lab" work. My husband just gave them a urine sample, then we received a bill from our insurance company for 5200.00!! No blood, just urine. We called and again the staff was rude, but gave us another number to call. Patrick stated that this is new and they would just take what insurance pays, but my insurance denied it. To us this does not seem right. Not happy at all.

Doctor's Response

I implemented a policy of performing toxicology screens last year. Many professional societies include screening in their guidelines and the Texas Medical Board requires that physicians consider obtaining a baseline toxicology screen before prescribing dangerous drugs or controlled substances. I regret that in identifying a lab which is willing to provide service from within my office, for my patients' convenience, we have had a few initial kinks to work out. I expect my staff and all affiliates to treat my patients respectfully and professionally, and will share your feedback. I have already taken action to ensure that future patients are happy with the way in which the lab(s) we use bill for their services.

This Doctor is Fantastic

I love Dr. St. John. I have been seeing her since 2007 when she first opened her practice. I really like her a lot. She listens and takes a lot of time to evaluate your situation. She is a very passionate, caring doctor. I wouldn't want to see any other doctor.

Sticking with the same psychiatrist for 9 years speaks volumes. Thanks for taking the time to write a post. :)
