  • 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.

    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.

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.

One Star

Good work ethic, in most cases. Over booked and often a no show due to reasons beyond reasonable doubt. Careful in the distribution of harmful medications, though, like most, doesn't have time to investigate due to Medicare, rigidity in documentation. Generalized approach toward patients, which is common with Dallas mental health systems, especially in Dallas.

Good doctor

I made an appointment with her because my insurance company recommended her. My previous doctor had prescribed me a ton of medication. I was taking medication to combat the side-effects of my primary medication. It was a hot mess. She evaluated my medications, and started from scratch. I take way less medication now, have way fewer side-effects and have had a much better outcome since seeing her. I'd recommend her to a friend in a situation similar to mine.

It depends how much money you have

The title says it all. She has three different offices and you get three levels of treatment. Her office staff at Timberlawn East should be arrested. The other two places you are treated like a cow or there is no staff. Unless you have big bucks expect nothing.

not the most caring person

when someone has been on a medicine for the last 5-6 years and then a doctor is not responsive enough that the patient goes thru withdrawals... this tells me the doctor is not very caring about the outcome that can happen to the patient or the family of the patient...
