Specialties

Dr. Rendueles Villalba II 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.

Highly disrespectful and condescending, questionable approach to psychiatry

Dr. Villalba used to practice at RI Hospital (running their partial hospital program), only to move to Butler, owned by the financially deprived Care New England. He now runs their ITP partial program. Villalba may seem like a sensitive, understanding doctor, if not a bit clinical when you first meet him. But his judgments can be deeply rooted in his personal biases. He made ridiculous and insulting assumptions about my "true" diagnosis, etc., with no factual basis. In doing this, he showed zero interest in reaching out to the therapist and prescribers I'd seen for years for their input on his absurd interpretations. I'm convinced that I had hurt his feelings with remarks I made about some people he knows, thus affecting his judgment. If you need a partial program, I strongly recommend the one at RI Hospital, as it's been completely re-staffed.
