  • 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.

My Father is a patient and not only is it impossible to get an apointment with her, the front desk staff makes 0 attempt to assist with getting you in for an Emergency situation. My suggestion is stay clear of this physician, locate a group of doctors if possible. If your loved ones require attention this is not the office to come too.

went to get test

I didn't find anything good about this Dr. She came into the room and didn't even introduce herself. Started poking me and never uttered a word. Walked out after the test was done and didn't even say a word. When I asked the tech if she was always this discourteous with patients his response was :"You only came here for a test". She's very sweet with her regular patients. So, don't get any testing done at her office. Rude and wait was awful.

No sugar coating, just strong medicine

We arrived at 12:25pm for a 12:30 appointment. We finally saw the doctor 3 hours later. She then proceeded to exam my brother-in-law. This was our first visit. The exam was through, everything from calling our pharmacy to confirm his meds to in-depth physical movement levels, my brother-in-law has Parkinson's. She apologized for the wait time, explaining that her office is converting all the medical records to a new computer program. This is a place for serious people with serious problems, if you want jokes and laughs, try the comedy channel.
