Dr. Phuong-Thuy T Le has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

This doctor has told me lies directly to my face. This doctor has said she will fax prescriptions that she did not. Her staff will repeat these lies, but refuse to give you their names. They will make billing errors, and then become combative and refuse to correct them. They offer the poorest level of care I have experienced in my entire life, and I used to be on medi-cal. I truly would not wish my worst enemy to go see this doctor, let alone someone in need of mental health treatment.
Dr. Le doesnât listen or treat her patients with compassion and respect. Dr. Le is a joke! My mom has been a little off the last couple years so we as a family decided to take my mom in for a visit. I wanted a Vietnamese speaking female Dr. that my mom would be comfortable opening up to and Dr. Le was the only option we had with availability for the following week. Other doctors were booked weeks or months out. That should have been a sign for me! Dr. Le started off asking my mom some basic questions and was immediately prescribing my mom depression medication within minutes of speaking with her. She was so quick to diagnose my mom with minor depression. I was a little taken back since my mom is usually a really happy person. She sent my mom out of the room after speaking with her for 10 minutes so she can speak with my dad and me privately. I told her a few other stories of why I didnât think my mom was depressed and she quickly told me she wasnât sure if it was minor depression or dementia and she would like my mom to start on depression pills for 30 days to see how it goes. I told her my concern with her so quickly prescribing my mom medication without talking to her more and she was like I am I the Dr. or you? Seriously where is the respect and compassion? I explained to the Dr. (not sure if I even should call her a Dr.) â I only wanted my mom on depression medication if we were 100% sure that she is depressed. The dr. tells me is doesnât know anything for sure but she can guarantee that the depression pills will do no harm whatsoever if my mom were to try them. Seriously!!! Depression pills have tons of side effects! I wish I had a recorder at the time so I could report her for malpractice. Misdiagnoses are possible â and it is generally a good idea to get a second opinion. So I told the Dr. that I was uncomfortable with her diagnosing my mom so quickly and I wanted a second. Dr. Le immediately became defensive and was livid. She needs to get off her high horse. She doesnât care about her patients all she wants is $$$. She doesnât want to refer my mom to a neurologist since that wonât be money in her bank. She wants my mom to take unnecessary depression pills so she can get paid!
I have got severe depression and often thought of suicide for a long time. Although I use Prozac 40 mg every day, I feel headache all days and could not sleep at nights. I saw the first psychiatrist a year ago and the problem was still there. So, I made an appointment to see Dr. Thuy a week ago. I saw her because no other psychiatrist accepts my CARE 1st Medicare Advantage. I went to her office with an empty head. I don't know what to tell her. I told her to ask me and I answered. After 30 minutes of talking, she gave me Mirtazapine 15 mg and asked me to come back in 3 weeks. I used one before bed time. I slept well that night and, to my surprise, my headache almost went away in the following morning, Now, I feel much better. I thank her very much. I cannot thank enough the scientists who made the medicine.
