Specialties

Dr. Soo Borson 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

Excellence

Dr Borson and her staff, especially Teresa Holder MSW, were remarkable with our family. She consulted with my brothers over the phone about mom's status, listened well, was very generous with her time and expertise, and she and Teresa advocated for mom and helped us in so many ways. We are forever grateful.
