Specialties

Dr. Philip R Delio 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.

Calm, caring doctor.

Good listener, highly intelligent and well-educated. He took care of me through two strokes and I wouldn't have anyone else.

Simply the best, competent, and most caring. Honest and trustworthy.

I took the time to review his ratings and patients comments. The honesty and clarity of the reviews convinced me that Dr. Delio is unusually competent, caring, and trusted by his patients. His patients attest that he is well worth traveling great distances to see him.

Dr Delio was the first neurologist I saw after losing consciousness a number of times and going through a battery of exhausting and painful tests (including a botched lumbar puncture).His expertise, kindness and ability to identify the problem was amazing. Since seeing him, I have moved from the Santa Barbara area and subsequently seen 4 more neurologists---all who (in my opinion) are no match to Dr. Delio. I still consider him my primary neurologist, and do not mind driving the 400+ miles it takes for me to see him. He is truly one of a kind.
