Specialties

Dr. Neff R Breen 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.

Dr. Breen is my best doctor at Kaiser. I like the way he listens to me, and he treats me as an equal partner in my health care. Is very knowledgeable, but he is also willing to hear new ideas and learn things after our visit when I ask him questions. Then he'll get back to me with what he finds. He is very thorough, and he integrates his care with my family practice doctor. I have had depression for many years. I feel lucky to have Dr. Breen treating it now. It isn't cured, but he has helped a lot. I highly recommend him!

Thorough and helpful

dr Breen helped me a lot. It was a bad time and I wasn't wits end and not getting better with the medicine my other doctor tried. Dr Breen figured out I had low thyroid and neded different depression medicine. He was very caring and so was the rest of the program staff.

Really good doctor

Dr Breen saw me in the Intensive program. He spent more time with me than any other doctor has ever done. He asked lots of details instead of just giving me pills after five minutes like my previous doctor. He also spent time to talk about diet and natural healing and I liked that. I wanted to see him for my regular psychiatrist but he can only see people while they are in the intensive program.

This Dr. needs some help...

This Dr. is not current in his field and has had numerous complaints. Would benefit from a better bedside manner and further knowledge of medicine in general. I would not recommend this Dr. or his staff. His staff is always running later, condescending in nature and rude. This dr. tends to prescribe too many medications that may conflict with one another. He does not do a thorough review of patient files before prescribing.
