Specialties

Dr. Robert L Doyle has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • 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.

Dr. Doyle took care of my son during a very difficult time for him. He is a caring, devoted doctor for his patient and family, and my experience with him. Always called back quickly, when needed to discuss medicines and issues. Dr. Doyle is a committed health professional and very knowledgeable in his field. Highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Doyle.

Robot-like in Three Piece Suit

We saw this doctor to discuss attention deficit in our eight year old son. It was an awful experience. He is stiff, unfriendly, and shakes he is so nervous. We cancelled further appointments.

Never let your child see him

As a physician I was appalled at his unbelievably atrocious bedside manner and robotic approach. I have never had a worse clinical experience either when I was in practice or as a patient.
