Specialties

Dr. Tammy N Tsuchida has the following 4 specialties

  • Neurology with Special Qualifications in Child Neurology
  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • 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.

Uninterested, distracted. I know she sees these seizure disorders every day and it must get boring to her, but couldn't she at least pretend to care? Fortunately I don't think my son can tell.

Very intelligent and competent. I took my 5 month old son in with a concern about seizures. She has a wonderful demeanor with children and parent's. Her expertise was immediately apparent, however, she is not at all arrogant. She explains things clearly. She returns calls promptly. I am an advanced practice nurse and had never met her before. I give her an A+. She is an excellent clinician. I wish there were more physicians out there like her. I would encourage seeing her if your child has neurological problems.

Wonderful support and resource as I struggled with epilepsy during my high school years. Accessible considering her large patient load. Highly recommended

Highly educated, but poor bedside manner and unresponsive if you're not right in front of her. Difficult to take as a parent of a child who is supposed to be under her care. Will probably find another doctor.
