Specialties

Dr. Nancy L Diaz-Pechar 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.

outstanding communicator and listener

Dr Diaz has restored my confidence in the current medical system. She is an outstanding communicator and listener. I did not have to but I would wait for hours happily to know I would receive the kind of care that was extended to me. She is kind and most helpful with solutions and treatment. She has my highest recommendation!

I trust Dr. Diaz.

I trust Dr. Diaz. She thinks before she talks. We have excellent back and fourth communication AND she make me laugh! She has become part of my life team. She would be very hard to replace. I get botox from here for dystonia and programing of my Deep Brain Stimulator.

Misdiagnosis, invalidation - terrible!!

Absolutely DO NOT SEE THIS DOCTOR. She is rude, dismissive, and completely unwilling to order necessary testing to figure out a patient's symptoms - went undiagnosed and instead got sent to a psychiatrist because she claimed there was nothing wrong with me! Later confirmed as a SERIOUS condition that needs surgery. She didn't even bother to update me with the results of my MRI - never heard about them.
