Specialties

Dr. Thomas E Bittker has the following 3 specialties

  • Forensic Psychiatry
  • 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

    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.

Impressive and compassionate

Although he is extremely busy juggling a private practice, court work and apparently a clinic, he made me feel cared for and from the first visit conveyed both compassion balanced with an incisive approach to my problem. I am an attorney and tend to be critical of sloppy thinking. This guy is the real deal. Both his approach to medication and to psychotherapy were creative and most helpful.

A very special doctor.

Extraordinary. I have suffered from depression for more than half my life. Dr. Bittker was the first psychiatrist to accurately diagnose my problem, in part related to lifestyle and recommend a holistic approach to treatment. I have not felt this well in years. He is also a compassionate and sensitive psychotherapist who is beginning to help me see my potential

Transforming experience! An extraordinary physician and person.

Dr.B is an extraordinary physician and person. He is both appropriately tough and kind. I have worked with him for two years and am now graduating from treatment. His treatment of me had been transforming. He lives what he advocates. Apparently he is 75 years old. I don't know how he does it-- I suspect his lifestyle reflects his discipline--but he looks about 50. Only downside was wait times to see him initially. Well worth the wait.

Words cannot express how much I like this doctor, depend upon him!

Dr. Bittker has been my psychiatrist for over 3 years. He really "saved" me. My quality of life has been much better since I have been seeing him. I would highly recommend anyone who is serious about improving their mental health - their life really - to see this very good doctor.
