Specialties

Dr. Robert F Swords 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.

great down to earth doc

I called him on a Saturday and left a message expecting to hear from him the following week. One hour after calling he called right back (on Saturday!) And we made an appointment for that week. He is a great doctor who is very good at what he does. The people looking for a doc that talks need to see a counsoler. Psychiatrists are mainly med management. Not talk docs. Also if you think you're being misdiagnosed, calk and tell him. And really think about every symptom. Swords is a great doc. You people writing certain reviews are just bad patients.

One Star

He misdianosed my condition, put me on two benzos at the same time, and told me to "drink a cuppa coffee several timesa day, that'll keep ya goin'." Very bad advice. Then he gave me another med in addition to the benzos (I didnt know at the time, an antipsychotic) but told me it was a "tranquilizer" , so naturally I refused it. Needless to say, I found another physician.
