Specialties

Dr. Rachel J Saunders-Pullman 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.

Exceptional

Dr. Saunders-Pullman is exceptional. While obviously very well-versed and enthusiastic about Parkinson's research, what sets her apart is her holistic approach to treatment. She recognizes that PD is a lot more than motor disorders; that there are mental and emotional aspects as well. This, coupled with a warm bedside manner, open-mindedness, taking ample time to clearly explain issues and respectfully answering questions all speak to the fact that she genuinely cares about her patients.

Best doctor I've ever seen!

The best possible combination of knowledge, personality and bed side manner. Dr. RSP spends as much time as I need answering every question with detail and humor. She makes you think you're the only patient scheduled with unlimited time. Who could ever imagine looking forward to a quarterly medical exam when being treated for PD.
