Specialties

Dr. Timothy Oster 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

    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.

Dr. Oster is one of the finest Doctors in the business. His bedside manner far exceeds any other doctors we had to deal with over the last two years and we are hoping that we will be lucky enough to find someone who can get close to his level of compassion and intelligence in dealing with the problems that our son is still dealing with on a daily basis. I would recommend him to every patient that needs a qualified Neurologist!

We saw Dr. Oster for followup after a brief hospitalization through the emergency room. He saw us at the scheduled time with virtually no time to even sit down in the waiting room. He was well prepared, having reviewed the record from the hospital and all of the test results. He was personable and respectful, explaining everything to us as intelligent people rather than talking down to us. His manner was very friendly and relaxed, as if he had all the time in the world. We hope we won't need a neurologist again but would not hesitate to go back to him if we do.
