Specialties

Dr. Wallace A Heller 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 Heller is an amazing doctor. I wish I'd seen him years ago. He knows his medicat ions and how they work together better than any family Dr. I've had in the past. He's very observant and has a good bedside manner.

Good, considering he is one of the only Psyc's in the area

I kinda have mixed feelings about Dr. Heller and JCMHCC in particular. They are good at diagnosing problems, but were all too quick at prescribing medication. I went to them for mental help, had many sessions with Stan Mitchell and Ronda Valdez. The level of compassion they show is outstanding, but offered little in the way of treatment. I have PTSD that is getting worse. Other than sitting around talking about my feelings, nothing usefull was ever offered in the way of treatment. I visited Dr. Heller roughly once every six weeks for maybe an hour and quite honestly, the visit was nothing more than to see how my Clonazepam was working, I would have preferred to have spent more time with him working at a treatment. I would probably recommend him as long as you make it clear you want treatment and not medication.
