Specialties

Dr. Virginia B Hemelt 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.

Can't say enough

There was a mix up by my referring Dr. With the Appointment and the office staff was extremely kind and went over and above to get it all worked out so that I could still be seen. Dr. Hemelt is thorough, understanding, and very kind. I have already recommended her to my brother in law and will continue to recommend her HIGHLY!!!

Think twice..

I don't even know if she's a good or not. But, she lets her staff ruin it for her. Communication is non-existent. There is NO sense of urgency. Good luck making it clear to the point of actual diagnosis and treatment. I would've given "follows up after visit" a negative 10 stars if possible. The sad thing is she may not even be aware of how her office operates....

Perserverance

Dr. Hemelt keeps trying until she comes up with a diagnosis of your condition!! She is the only doctor who finally found my problem and treated it with compassion. There is no cure for my problem, but she treated the pain & helped me find ways to deal with it.
