Dr. Susan D Delaney has the following 3 specialties
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.
- Addiction Medicine
An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.
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.

I sought out a psychiatrist during a period of time in my life that I felt like seeing that kind of doctor was best for me. Dr. Delaney helped me through some tough times and for that I am forever greatful. One thing that she did was change my medication (which ended up being for the best) and putting me on a controlled substance. I never went into her office seeking those kinds of drugs. She told me they would work well for me. They did help and I did appreciate her. I unfortunately was no longer able to afford to see her due to the fact she does not take insurance ( cash ONLY) so I had to see a PCP in hopes to atleast be able to get Zoloft prescribed. I received a phone call for the new PCP telling me that I no longer will be a patient of theirs due to a message from my "prior provider" indicating that I "misuse my medication" and that I am a "Doctor shopper". Without knowing any of my prior medical conditions in the last 12 months she herself basically labeled me a drug abuser while she was responsible for putting me on a controlled substance I didn't even ask for. So now I am stuck without a provider due to what I feel is because I'm no longer a pateint. Dr. Delaney did wonders for me but when you take a step back she is basically a licensed drug dealer. You give her cash and she writes you a prescription for drugs. So if you are someone looking for a good psychiatrist that will freely write you prescriptions for benzos, this is the dr for you. P.s. I saw the last negative comment posted and the response it received. If you aren't allowed to give your honest oppinion, what is the point of this website? What I wrote is my truth. It's not what everyone else will experience. Like I said she is a great dr I just feel like I was incorrectly judged for no reason.
Thankfully, Texas has the Prescription Access Texas Program through the Department of Public Safety. This enables me to look up ALL prescriptions my patient has received for controlled substances during the previous 12 months. I can see a report that lists the medication, the doctor and the date filled. I regularly check this data base for my patients. Three times last year, I found patients who were using 17, 14 and 15 different doctors, respectively, to obtain controlled substances. I always check the PAT if a patient requests a controlled substance. I always check it if there are "off" events reported by the patient. I am licensed to prescribe "dangerous drugs" and "controlled substances" by the State of Texas. I take this responsibility very seriously and often check the PAT to see what controlled substances my patient is using and how many doctors he is getting them from. This response is to the false allegations about me in this review. My response here is a general one, nothing in this response should be construed to refer directly to the person who wrote the review. The PAT is accessible to doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and law enforcement. Doctor shopping is a crime in Texas. I am free to report doctor shopping to law enforcement.
One day I really didnât know how to move on with my life anymore. I was desperate for help. I had gone through years of surgeryâs and medical problems. I became very isolated and got anxiety to the extend that I didnât go outside anymore alone. I could not even go outside to get my mail out of the mailbox. I found Doctor Delaney by her website. I called her right away and I could get an appointment the next day. My husband drove me to her office and at the first appointment I knew I had found the right doctor. She was warm, understanding, non-judgmental and I felt relief after our first meeting. Iâm from another country, English is my second language, and itâs hard to express your feelings and emotions in another language. But it has never been a problem. Doctor Delaney always gave and still gives me the understanding, support, and everything I needed and hoped for to improve my social anxiety and street fear and overcome my low self esteem and learning to accept myself. Every time we have a meeting, I learn new things and come home relaxed, secure, and get stronger. She is always on time ! This is wonderful. You canât find one doctor anymore where you never have to wait. If it wasnât for all her help I would still not be able to drive my car and go outside without anxiety and I even can go alone on flights overseas. What a progress !!! Thank you doctor Delaney. I would highly recommend her.
I chose Dr. Delaney based on reviews I had read, so I think it is appropriate time for me to do the same. I went in knowing I had a problem and for at least 10 years nobody has ever been able to get me to feel so much better after only 3 weeks. I will definitely update again when I am on the maintenance plan. Now I had already been prescribed a variety of antidepressants but Dr. Delaney was able to get me off several and switch then to something that meets my body better. She is very patient, with this nonstop talker normally, and listens. I am finally able to sleep more than 1 -2 hours a night since 2009. Hands down if you need help go and try Dr. Susan Delaney.
