Specialties

Dr. Oscar Soto 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.

Unfortunately, it seemed that this doctor was more interested in giving a young resident her training than in helping me to figure out what's causing my numerous neurological symptoms. Very few tests were done. The doctor showed little concern about how to alleviate my symptoms, and he frankly seemed a little dismissive of them.

Here's the basics of what happened to me... Essentially Dr. Soto completely misdiagnosed my problem. I saw him many times over the course of a half dozen months. My situation never seemed to really get better. Each time I saw him I felt like he took less interest in me. A few months ago I went to another neurologist. Within two minutes she gave me another diagnosis. I've been seeing that diagnosis through and now in a few short months I'm both drug and symptom free. I get angry when I think about all that time I spent following Dr Soto's misguidance.
