Specialties

Dr. Stephen S Able 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.

Worth the wait

It was hard to get in to see him. When I did he was very professional and listened to my ever word without a hint of judgement. He took time to explain his responses and even suggested some books on the subject. He is older and old school which I like. I did have a question a few days after my appointment and I left it with his "receptionist" He got back to me the next day which I was happy with. He seems like he cares and I felt comfortable with him and will be seeing again!!

I have been under his care for 5+ years. I have never had a problem getting in when I am in crisis, or suffered any negative results from his med oversight. He's always there when I need help.

The worst hack you could go to.

He is an absolute hack. He acts perplexed all the time, while you are talking to him. He over prescribes pills . He LIES without cause. He testified in a trial and made up answers without cause. Both attorneys were laughing at his confusion and unprofessional conduct and he dressed like a hobo for court. RUN to find another
