Specialties

Dr. Stephen E Prover has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

One Star

Dr. Stephen E Prover is not a people person. I think he is judgemental and sizes you up. He might even be prejudice. I heard he is retired now any way. I even heard allegedly from a therapist that works in his office that the therapist was threatened by Dr. Prover at a staff meeting where he pulled one of those juvenile feints to make you flinch. Unprofessional. One time mid session he left his office to attend to something else therefore he was not attentive. He has all those degrees awards and so on, but can't put it into a basic doctor office setting. The only thing I am grateful to him is that a U.S. Army veteran who served in the Viet Nam war. Enjoy your retirement, sir. God speed...

Why is this Guy a Psych???

You go to see a Psych because you are mentally ill and need their help. Mental illness requires a gentle, caring touch to assist the patient in their recovery right? Not with this Dr. it doesn't! This man has the personality of a bad Las Vegas lounge comic (the ones who ask people where they are from and proceeds to insult their hometowns)!!! His bedside manner is atrocious! Wisecracking, rude, sarcastic,.....just doesn't want to seem to be there for his patients. This man is better suited to running the returns department at Walmart (arguing with people suits him well) then being a psychiatrist. Even though I was suffering from depression, after 3 visits, I called my PPO and gave them a piece of my mind. They quickly gave me another referral and apologized profusely!!

One of the Best

The staff was very helpful and attentive. Dr. Prover was very professional and attentive and diagnosed me correctly. He was very helpful to give me samples while my insurance approved my medication. I would definitely recommend him....
