Dr. Thomas O Giancarlo has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

Dr. Giancarlo is knowledgeable and helpful, but office too big I am a number. Only see doctor first appt and then NPs and PAs after that. Long wait time, and impossible to get things accomplished over the phone. They require appointments to get bloodwork results, and appointments anytime a medication is given. Office seems more money driven instead of helping customers. Love the doctor, hate the office and it's procedures. I will be going elsewhere.
This office has never treated me as a human being besides Dr Nabity only have seen GianCarlo 3 times out of 7 years at office you wait forever in waiting room and sometimes forever in exam room I see PA all the time I get treated like a number due to having Medicare and Medicaid I have Multiple Sclerosis Fibro myalgia and severe back issues and I do not feel like they've done really anything to help me I still truly don't completely understand what Multiple Sclerosis is and no one can help me figure out what pain is from my MS or from my Fibro myalgia I wouldn't recommend this office to anyone who has same insurance if you have private insurance they treat you different I was told my prior authorization was being done 5 months ago due to roid rage and truly they only submitted it a month and a half ago been having a major MS flare up for over 7 months now and finally now I'm getting the injections I needed back then
Horrible doctor! Waited forever in office then seen by someone that did a 45 minute detailed review that Giancarlo never even looked at and did not have the slightest clue as to why I was there even though everything was in chart. He relies on his PA to give him this detail but doesn't listen to anything. He also lies about returning phone calls and the office staff is so rude it is ridiculous! He promised to follow up with a phone call the next day and never called! Instead, I called his office four times! The day after that, I called two more times and was told that he was at lunch and that they were NOT going to disturb his lunch! Oh, also do not try to get records. You are told that the wait is seven to ten days even though we all know it only takes a second to print a specific test result up. St. Johns needs to also get involved with this stuff because they should take his hospital rights away. He is more dangerous than any good because he is not practicing medicine but rather running a multimillion dollar business by taking advantage of the general public that falls victim to him if they end up at the hospital. This man is dangerous and does not care one bit about his patients or the priceless time that is lost after a serious illness to get better. He does not remember why you are there, what is affected on your body or even what illness you have that brought you to him. You have to push for tests, results, and anything else to try to get better. Stay clear - this man does not care!!!!! Only cares about $$$$ - not you! If I could have given him a half star or less on this chart, I would have gladly done it.
