Specialties

Dr. Richard Gallagher has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

This doctor assists in exorcisms

Yes, this board certified psychiatrist assists in exorcisms. Read his lovely op/ed in the Washington Post where he so arrogantly/ignorantly declares that patients are free of mental illness but are filled with evil spirits because he has second hand knowledge of things such as their "levitation" and speaking a foreign language. Bravo Doctor, you blur the line between charlatan and avid Harry Potter fan boy with physician a distant third.

Excellent doctor

Dr. Gallagher is the most knowledgeable and sensible psychiatrist I have ever met. Further, he is very compassionate and down-to-earth. He actually seems like a normal guy, not always my experience with shrinks!!
