Specialties

Dr. Mary O'Neal 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.

Arrogant and dismissive doctor, no help at all

Dr O'Neal was completely dismissive of me and my condition over the course of several appointments. She actually told me there was no point in her spending time to diagnos me because there was no treatment. Her manner is off-putting and she is neglectful. Don't accept this treatment from a doctor.

Have to agree...STAY AWAY

I thought by driving nearly 2 hours to a facility that is top ranked, that I would see a top notch Dr. that could help me. WRONG!!!!! She was odd, ok so what if she was a good Dr. I had to ask her if she was even going to look at my MRI and when she did, I don't think she had a clue. She was not easy to speak to and her bedside manner SUCKED. Her idea of treatment was to start me at base 1 that I did several years prior with no relief. I left there so discouraged, and disappointed and I was no better off. I guess you can't always expect top notch Drs. no matter what facility you go to. WASTE OF TIME. The staff however, was extremely nice.

Five Stars

I almost cancelled my appointment after reading scurrilous reports on the internet about her and her staff. she had been recommended by a Dr. who I have profound respect for. Fortunately I didn't and can report only good things about her except for the wait to get an appointment. she was well worth waiting for.
