Specialties

Dr. Patrick J Bushard has the following 3 specialties

  • Vascular Neurology
  • 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.

Steer clear!

Stuck with him for 18 months due to insurance. He pushed prescriptions even when they were not working and/ or making things worse. Did not listen to patient and did not think out side of the box!! Scoffed and discarded symptoms patient reported, made unprofessional and completely wrong assumptions. Transferred to another Dr. New Doc couldn't believe the unprofessional charting and overall even less than minimalistic care given by Dr. Bushard! First visit with new Dr. = did more patient assessment and diagnostics than Bushard did in 18 mo! Within a hand full of visits the new Doctor, After listening to patient and doing standard physical assessments located the part of the brain that was the culprit to it all. A Doctor should be a source of hope and support not judgement and exasperation. Steer clear!

Sad

I went to Dr .Bushard full of hope only to be treated like a joke and to be told I was a dummy. This man did not even take the time to read my past medical history or run a single test. I left his office feeling horrible and completely doubting myself. save yourself the time, money and heartache and find a different neurologist.

Dr Bushard is Excellent.

Dr Bushard is excellent Neurologist, he clearly explains my issues, how to treat them and offers alternatives when the outlined treatment is not working. Additionally, he works closely with my other physicians to maintain my overall health. His staff is friendly and easy to work with. They have assisted me with insurance issues to ensure I quickly receive my prescription needed for injections to ease my pain.

HORRIBLE~HORRID~POOR EXCUSE FOR A DR~

This person shouldn't even be allowed to interact with patients!!! He was a D bag from the very first minute he entered the room. Its a shame that the hospital would employ such garbage robed in flesh. I was referred to him because I had symptoms my PCP thought could be MS. He completely blew me off and only focused on the fact I wasn't a size 2~ He made a snarky comments through the entire visit. I left there feeling worse than when I went in. Hes a horrible person and should have his license revoked...Every star should be below 1
