Specialties

Dr. Ty L Schwertfeger has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.
    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.

I felt like he did not listen to me. I tried to tell him about what was going on and since I told him I took an anxiety med he put me in a box. He said because he could not find anything else wrong with me that it was due to STRESS. I have had speech problems and motor skill problems since everything started and have had a MRI and CT. Don't you think you might want to do a little more research before just leaving me hanging?

Other neurologists depend on Physician's assistants but here it seems she is more my neurologist than Dr. Schertfeger. It was over a year in between before actually seeing him again despite complaining of the same problems in repeat visits with the physician's assistant. When one gets to see him, he takes a lot of time with his patients and has a good bedside manner.
