Specialties

Dr. Pamela A Pappas 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.

The range of Dr. Pappas's expertise is a plus to any patient. It was extremely important to me to find a doctor that could help me transition from traditional to alternative mental health care. I knew at my first appointment that I had found the perfect person to help me on my journey. Dr. Pappas could continue to prescribe my medication as we pursued homeopathic and alternative therapy paths. I am thrilled to report that after being on prescription medication for over 20 years I am now med FREE and thriving!I have reached a level of health and well being that I never expected to experience in my life time. It would not have been possible with out the dedication and caring of this wonderful doctor. Dr. Pappas gave me the ability to live again. I will be forever thankful.

When I walked through the door to my first appointment with Dr. Pam Pappas I was lost, angry, in fear and so much emotional pain that life was not of any value to me. I thought I had tried and done everything but nothing work. It was in desperation that I try just one more time. Today, through homeopathy and the guidance of Dr Pappas, life is full of light, hope, joy, and peace. I have reconnected with God and myself! Thank you for the gift of being able to live life fully every day.
