Specialties

Dr. Philip H Cogen 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.

Dr Cogen is the best

Dr Cogen is the best. He is extremely smart and has really good common sense. He is straightforward about treatment and will say we can try this, this may work, or this may not which is good because it sets realistic expectations. He seems to have a good understanding of the pros and cons of different meds unlike many other psychiatrists that give off the impression that they solely go off of what the drug companies told them. He has an eccentric personality so the conversation feels more like talking with a friend than talking with someone in a suit that may give you a weird look if you say something insane. Like many psychiatrists he doesn't take insurance which is the biggest issue with seeing him, but I can understand his perspective on that.
