Specialties

Dr. Nancy J Cao 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.

Great Dr.

I had a headache for 5 weeks prior to being directed to Dr. Cao. At our first visit, she set me up to have a series of tests, and immediately initiated a three pronged treatment to address my problem. We went to work on my Hemoglobin, Blood pressure and Diet. Within a couple of days, my headache was gone. Now a year later, my Blood Pressure is stabilized, Hemoglobin is in a normal range, and I have lost 30 lbs.

Migraine game changer

Dr. Cao takes time to listen to symptoms and put together a plan to combat them. If the plan requires reconsideration, she does so tirelessly. My quality of life has improved markedly since I first met Dr. Cao over five years ago now. When I met her I had migraine at least 14 days per month. Now I am down to 2 days per month. She just does not give up researching possible treatment options and made my problem her problem.

A Thorough, competent, caring Doctor

Dr. Nancy Cao is a thorough, competent, caring Doctor. I was directed to her by my Primary Care Giver, after I had suffered headache for over 5 weeks. She utilized the test results that were posted from previous tests to begin my treatment immediately. Though she performed several tests of her own, the positive results of her initial treatment was evident within a week. I have been pain free, without medication for pain, for over 9 months. In my opinion, this Dr. knows her stuff. I have had four appointments, and always had minimum wait time.

Did not listen to me

Dr. Cao did not listen to me and talked over me. She didn't explain my tests results and she put me in a diagnostic box. My new neurologist is so much better. Dr. Cao has helpful staff and they were the highlight of my visits.
