Dr. Ruth E Geller 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.

not that bad. turned out good.

Before her my doc was Mr. Charlie. he was very laid back easy to talk to. At first Dr. Geller was cold. thought she knew everything. she asked questions confidently knowing the answer... then i'd always shoot her down.. it was like a dog fight. it went on like this for several sessions until she said "i don't know everything so i will listen to you mr. unnamed". After that i was able to explain to her how i was feeling. i was able to get the prescription coctail that most relates to my problems. it did take some time but she/ we finally found the right mix of medications that did not get me sick, sleepy, wired, dopey and feel crazy. I immediately told her that. she said well good it takes time to get the correct mixture of meds sometimes. now when i go 1 per month, she is very receptive talks, jokes, refills my prescriptions, checks my blood works, recommends me for other clinics when need be.

NOT recommended

This woman is not very helpful at all. She is arrogant and pushy and does not listen at all to the patient. She thinks she is completely right always and will not let you forget it for a moment. The appointments were only 20 minutes long and she started late - always. She would speak for 10 minutes and then stop to session to write her patient report while patients sit there watching her misspell half of it. She deliberately mispronounces names, even after being corrected and does not have respect for her patients. I would NEVER recommend this woman to anyone. She has no idea what she is doing and will not tolerate criticism from patients or their families. It seems like the only reason she is in psychology is because she could not get into a better specialization after medical school. DO NOT GO TO THIS WOMAN who doesn't even deserve to be called doctor. Witch doctor perhaps.
