Specialties

Dr. Samuel O Etchie 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.

Dr. Etchie is a very kind Doctor who has seen me at my worst through out the years. I battled a drug addiction plus severe bi polar. he never made me feel bad about myself but always had kind words to say to me especially at my attempts at sobriety. I am now sober over a year and haven't been hospitalized in a year also. I still suffer from bi polar symptoms and will be contacting him to have him treat me if possible.

Disgrace. This man should not be a doctor. He doesn't not care about the wellbeing of his patients.

Excellent and caring doctor! !

I would highly recommend Dr Etchie. I have been a patient for 11 years. He is gentle and caring. He takes time in an appointment and I don't feel rushed. His waiting room is full of patients and wait times are longer than most Dr offices but that is not a problem for me due to excellent care. A+ doctor.
