Specialties

Dr. Polina P Shvarts 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.

Exemplary Practitioner

I cannot say enough about My experience with Dr. Schvarts. She is an excellent practitioner, and has been nothing but professional through my experience with her. If you look at her credentials, her specialties are not only in Psychiatry, but also in Neurology. If you want a family Centered care Doctor, she's it!! She wants to make sure that she is seeing the whole patient, and addresses any outside influences that might be making life difficult. If you want a caring Doctor to understand your needs as a patient, I would suggest you go to her. If you want to "Doctor Shop" just to obtain medications, she has no part in that!

Zero bedside manner

Laughs in your face, spends very little with you before throwing around very serious illnesses that you could "potentially" be suffering from. Throws around medication. RUN.

I have hope

Dr. Shvarts is awesome. She is very matter of fact but caring. She tells it like it is...which is what I need. When I left her office for the first time, I hugged her and thanked her for giving me hope for the first time in a long time.
