Specialties

Dr. Richard Hoetzel 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.

Was great, now seems ready to retire.

Dr. Hoetzel saved my life many years ago. That being said, over the past year or so he has changed. Seems he is on auto pilot, going through the motions and I do not know why. He is not present, is wrapped up in whatever is going on with him and not what is going on with his patients. This is very sad, because he was a great doctor. I truly hope he gets back to where he was or decides to pull the trigger and retire. I only wish the best for him, he did save my life, for that I am forever greatful, but he is no longer who and what he once was. I hope he sees this and gives what I am writing serious thought. Long term patient...many, many years together.
