Dr. Sonya N Jones 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.

Confrontational and Rude

Before my appointment with her, the receptionist handed me a sheet that listed my rights as a patient, which included requesting that Dr. Jones informs me whenever she shares my medical information with a third party. So, I requested that she do that, thinking that it is a pretty normal thing to want to know who has knowledge of my medical information. Dr. Jones, however, became defensive, saying a number of times that she "just wouldn't be comfortable with that" and belittled me by telling me that practically "nobody makes this request." When I asked further into the issue, she canceled our appointment on the spot and dismissed me from the waiting room. I was appalled. Before leaving, I asked why they even hand me a sheet telling me my rights if they are just going to deny them, to which she responded, "I really don't have to answer that question." Her defensiveness makes me wonder whose hands her patients' medical records end up in, and her condescending arrogance makes me wonder how she is still practicing. Stay away from this one.
