  • 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.

Expensive paperwork

The only problem I have is the cost to get paperwork filled out. They charge $25 to fill out one paper after waiting there for he's. My sister brought some paperwork in already filled out and all he had to do was sign it and it still cost $25. That's one EXPENSIVE signature if you ask me!!!

Three Stars

I only saw Dr. Best as a referral after an emergency room visit in which I was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy. The treatment I received at St Pat's seemed to have been very accurate. My visit with Dr Best was set up by my primary care Dr and it turned out to be more of a consultation because no farther treatment was needed. After seeing him I had to wait for the person behind the desk to finish a personal conversation before I could get instruction for an appointment to be set for another issue. I have not been back.
