Specialties

Dr. Sonja B Potrebic has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

As good as it gets among headache specialists

After my previous neurologist had lost, hope, Dr. Potrebic patiently tried a number of medications and other therapies with me to help my intractable migraine headaches and chronic daily headaches. She never lost hope, was very engaging during office visits and knew the best way to help me get my insurance company to compensate me for the care I needed. I've seen scores of medical providers and Dr. Potrebic is a uniquely good combination of academic background and knowledge, engaging bedside manner and positive, problem-solving approach.When I had difficulty obtaining an unusual off label usage medication she was kind enough to provide me with the information, including academic references in which the medication was used in that regard. She did so almost 8 years after I had seen her as a patient.She remains my favorite medical provider. Hopefully, you don't need to see her (as if you do, you probably have a difficult problem to solve), but I don't see how you could possibly be in better hands.
