Specialties

Dr. Wanda W Henao 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.

Excellent doctor

While suffering for years from what I thought was "normal" depression I was prescribed an antidepressant, which led me to a suicide attempt followed by time in a psychiatric hospital. For years after this I continued to be improperly diagnosed during the 15 minute appointments I had with 6-7 different psychiatrists, and continued to be prescribed different antidepressants that led to reoccurring suicidal thoughts, severe mental deterioration and mania. Dr. Henao spent an hour with me during my first appointment, writing down every word I said, from past experiences to family history to lifestyle. She diagnosed me with bipolar II at the second hour long visit, and started me on a mood stabilizer. The medication took a few weeks to work, ~4, and during this time I called several times in a panic, fearful that I might hurt myself. She saw me immediately every time, and talked me down to an emotional level that was manageable. After the medication started to have a positive effect, she worked with me on dosages, allowing me to move up and down as I felt necessary. I've been seeing her for about 7 months, and I can honestly say she saved my life. Once my illness stabilized, she began treating other mental health issues I've been dealing with as a result of the bipolar. It feels very foreign to say that I feel "normal". But I do, when 6 months ago I was certain I never would again. Dr. Henao will listen and be straight forward with you about your options. Be honest with her, and be receptive to her treatment approach. She genuinely cares and will not just shove a script in your hand and send you on your way. Christina is the receptionist for the office, she is also amazing. She calls me back every time and gets my refills done the same day. If you are struggling with any kind of mental illness, please do not go it alone, go see her.

dr henao ... no way no how !!

I saw dr. henao for about 6-9 months ... she put me on heavy drugs and not once did she tell me i needed blood work due to the drugs i was on ... every time i complained about something (not feeling well, still depressed, feeling very blue and wanting to self harm) her solution was to increase the doseage !! by the time i left her for a new doctor i had to be de-toxed from all of the crap she had me on ... if you want drugs - she is your go to !! otherwise ... steer clear !!

Incredibly Good

I worked in health care my whole life and due to a mistake where I worked I developed permanent brain damage, stroke, and depression. I was recommended to Dr. Henao by a professional colleague and I can honestly state she has turned my life around. I have learned to live with my disabilities and she is definitely my advocate. Not only is she well credentialed but when one enters her office there is a feeling of everything is going to be all right. I recommend her highly.
