Dr. Thomas A Flanagan 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

Rude and inconsiderate of your feelings.

Dr. Flanagan was very rude. Did not take into account my opinion. Treated me like my symptoms did not matter and that he did not take into account my opinion. At the end he said "Are we done here?" And left without saying good bye. I will not recommend him go anyone and will be switching doctors. Horrible psychiatrist. Makes you feel insecure and unconfident.
