  • 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.

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.

    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.

Senses of trust

I recently became Dr. Simon Desjardins patient for ECT treatment and my experience have been very positive, he is knowledgeable, explain the treatment, possible positive an negative results in simple terms, is respectful and discrete asking questions even some that could sound common an not particularly invasive for much people but indeed uncomfortable for a mentally distress one , commonly subject of unjustifiable stigma and, sometimes, just plain and hurtful approach. I sincerely appreciate his ways.
