Specialties

Dr. Paul D Schefflein 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.

Constant Headache to be here. Always late being seen

You are never seen on time. Been going here for years and it is always a 30 min wait to be seen. The staff depending on who it is can be nice at times. Always troublesome to get your prescription on time. Have to call the pharmacy and be told it was never called in.

Does not care

Spends less than 5 minutes with me. Just enough time to write prescriptions. Even with that, his staff doesn't get scripts to pharmacy. According to my pharmacy, when they try & contact his office they are "non responsive ". Had to call my primary Doctor for anxiety medicine. I will be seeking help elsewhere.
