Dr. Scott L Rauch 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.

Warning stay away from Rauch, joseph gold & mcLean

Warning I concur with both previous reviewers, my experience to the t with McLean & Scott Rauch & Joseph Gold too. They take a depressed client, pick the label that will bring the most revenue, just a label after the other, drug & blame the you for the abuse you went through, & kick you out when there's no more money to be squeezed, & when a forensic psych calls the treatment negligent, malpractice. Rauch & specially Gold ignore it & continue to blame the client. Their therapists can do no wrong. His 2nd hand Joseph Gold covers up Abuse malpractice, fraud, Gold also covers up conflicts of interest & if you value your life stay as far away from McLean as you can. Joseph Gold is capable to push anyone who's suicidal much closer to death. It's not a coincidence that so many of their patients commit suicide. Save your money & your life, avoid them.

Full Review Rating Breakdown

The previous reviewer took all of the words out of my mouth- EXACTLY my experience with MGH/McLean and Scott Rauch too. They will take a trauma patient, label and drug and blame that person for the abuse they endured, send them home for more domestic abuse, and then, even when Harvard's own trauma specialist calls that treatment "psychiatric abuse" in writing, Scott Rauch will back the abusive shrinks and blame the patient. Add the fact that psychiatry is 100% lies, fraud, conflicts of interest and quackery, and everyone should stay as far away from McLean as they can. Seriously, if you are suicidal, this place will push you even closer to death.

Supports Other Harvard Abusers

Never go to a hospital or doctor's office alone. Harvard is full of nasty narcissists who use and abuse regular people, including those they have a duty to protect. Highly destructive specialty full of personality-disordered, misogynistic men.
