Specialties

Dr. Nicolaas-John J Van Nieuwenhuysen 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.

Has Tunnel Vision

Dr. Van has tunnel vision. He fails to think outside the box and just persues one idea and pushes it even though none of the signs or symptoms of the claimed disorder are present. He fails to take into account medication or its affects or even take into account the side affects or interactions with other medications. He has his theory and that is all that matters, he will not consider anything else even when it poses a detriment to the patient. I have also noticed that there is a long wait time in the waiting room for the appointments, not up to 40 minutes after the scheduled time and the time spent with the patients is steadily decreasing from an hour to ten minutes.

Doesn't Listen

He does not seem to listen, or uses selective listening and goes onto a tangent on phrases. He is big on issuing medications which will knock you out and simply mask the symptoms, sadly often the symptoms of the meds are much worse than the original issue.
