Specialties

Dr. Richard A Cassone 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.

This guy is a benzo pusher. He doesn't care about his patient's at all. He doesn't listen, gets angry at his patient's and our doctors. He thinks he knows best about everything. Hey Doc, not everyone needs a benzo. Maybe if you put a little thought into things you could actually provide your patients with some real help.

Dr. Cassone is one of the best at what he does

Dr. Cassone is the best psychiatrist I've seen in Johnstown. The reception staff are always incredibly polite and fun to talk to. The psychiatric nurse who did my intake was extremely intelligent and personable. Dr. Cassone impressed me because he spent over an hour talking to me, going past closing time to continue to work with me. He takes his time trying to find the right diagnosis and does not jump to conclusions like many doctors. You can tell he really cares about your health and well-being and that he has a lot of experience doing what he does. When you call Dr. Cassone with a med management problem, he personally returns your call. The last time I called with a question about a side effect he returned my call within half an hour - try finding that elsewhere in Johnstown. I'm writing this review in hopes that someone who is struggling with their mental health might see it and and get the help that they need because I know that finding a good doctor can be difficult. I would send anyone looking for a good doctor to Dr. Cassone.

Five Stars

Dr. Cassone is an awesome doctor and I would recommend him to anyone. He is not arrogant or self centered. He listens to what you are saying to him. I have actually followed him from a previous location to Indiana and would do it again if I had to. He is the one who got me diagnosed and got my meds straightened out. I hate to think of where I would be if it weren't for him.

Rude and unprofessional

My sister is a patient of his and she has only gotten worse since she began seeing him; she literally dreads going to appointments. He is insensitive towards his patients and gives little sign of actually caring about them. Likewise, he is gruff and rude and, worst of all, entirely disrespectful towards friends and family members of his patients who are just trying to help.

A family member had overdosed on flexeril and left a loaded gun on the table at home, as well as a suicide note. Dr. Cassone spoke with him and proclaimed him to "not be a danger to himself or others" and dismissed him 8 hrs later, while he was still slurring his speech, in spite of different family members begging him not to do so for EVERYONE's safety. Reporting him to board.
