Specialties

Dr. Michael F Kozart 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.

very compassionate, caring and intelligent.

Dr kozart protected me from a lot of mistreatment by other psychiatry staff when i was an inpatient, he didn't have to. He is the type of doctor who will go above and beyond and is a good advocate for patients.

Well worth the wait!

It is always a long wait in the waiting room to see him but it IS well worth it. He is quick to the point without seeming cold. He knows his job well and is genuinely concerned with all of his patients .

Two Stars

He is pleasant, but seems to like to chat rather than address problems of the client. If you don't present a dramatic display he seems to think not much can be wrong. I found it frustrating to get him to understand the depth of my problems and felt I was brushed off many times. (btw, switched Drs and when he heard Dr. Kozart was once my Dr., asked my opinion (which I gave. Similar as what I posted above) and he gave a little smile and said that was what other clients had felt about Dr. Kozart so it wasn't just me who felt they weren't getting his full attention. Again, not a bad guy, just doesn't give creedance to the problems one expresses and is concerned about unless you strongly stress your concerns and address about his seeming disregard.

Kozy with Kozart

For anyone who requires psychiatric attention and is not currently insured, I highly recommend seeing Dr. Michael Kozart at the Santa Rosa Health Clinic. Out of the numerous Dr.'s at the VA, as well as two private practice Dr.'s I've seen in Sonoma County, Dr. Kozart is by far the finest psychiatrist I've seen. Although he has a lot on his plate at the S.R. clinic being that it is a free clinic, he makes me feel like a person with needs . Dr. Kozart is a very compassionate and understanding man, and the mental health profession needs more like him.
