Dr. Thomas W Skorupski has the following 2 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.
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 thought this guy was great till 3 years into the addiction he still has me on a cocktail on medication- much of which I can't just stop taking!! Why as an addiction specialist does he prescrib an addict so many benzos???? Shouldn't his goal be to help the addict and get them off medications not put them on so many that the addict has to keep coming back to you for these medications for 3 years?? If u want meds he is a good choice- if u want to get better and off meds he is a poor choice!
Dr. Skorupski is a good doctor when/if he is able to be reached. He seems a bit shady at times but it's hard to tell. He is deff looking for the money but has the patient's best interest in mind. Just be careful and ask a lot of questions, as he does private practice. No insurance accepted and the usual high price expected.
he is a well trained doctor that knows what he is doing. He is expensive; doesn't accept insurance but if you have the money, spend it with him. He is not a doctor who will prescribe any drug you want; so don't go to him if you are trying to get meds to get high or sell. he is a legit doctor but not afraid to prescribe what is needed. he may seem a little abrasive, a little, but just speak up and you'll be fine. Remember, you are in control of your care, not him. You dictate what is wrong and how you want to be treated. he is there to help find what is best for you.
