Dr. Robert Ancira has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

Office staff are the worst
Self-verified patient of Dr. Robert Ancira - Posted on April 27th, 2017
Dr. Ancira is fine I suppose but the office staff are terrible. They do everything on paper and calculators like its 1985 but that's a personal choice if they didn't forget to call or fax in my prescription refills every single time. They wont answer the phone for days at a time, I just get a busy signal. Then when they do they hang up on me for asking when my appointment is. How does anyone stay in business like this? I'm switching to Oschner system as soon as I can time it right with my prescriptions.

I am not a dummy and well educated. I have been a patient of Dr. Ancira for a number of years and he is a very professional, kind hearted physician. I must say, this is my second bad experience with his staff. I don't know if it's his daughter working for him, but she has a real "funky" attitude. It's so bad until I hate to call his office. Before, I had to write a letter to Dr. Ancira because the staff was so unprofessional. I just called, thinking I had an apt for Aug. 3rd and was told abruptly, 'no" and hung up before I could explain that one of my other doctors stated it was important that I speak with him regarding a very important matter. I held for about 15 minutes when I realized she had hung up and took the phone off the hook so she wouldn't receive a call back. She needs some public relations training like yesterday. After all we as patients are paying our money, she is not giving up anything. If she dislikes her job, quit and stay at home. She should not be allowed to work with patients because soon or later, it's not going to be nice. She needs to learn to respect Dr. Ancira's patients. I can't even leave a message. I hate when it's time for my appointment, because I love meeting with the doctor, but her attitude, "sucks".
Terrible and rude receptionist and staff
