Specialties

Dr. William K Drell 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. WOULD NOT ACCEPT PATIENTS THAT HAVE BEEN HOSPITALIZED

I called dr. Drell's office to make an appointment for my husband and after I informed the person that anwered the phone that the appointment is for my husband and that he was recently released from an inpatient clinic (where he self admited himself); she informed me that dr. Drell doesn't take patients that have been in a physchiatric hospital. I'm sorry than he is in the WRONG line of business. Isn't that what DOCTOR were suppose to do, treat patients that are sick. Not everyone that has been admitted in a behavioral health unit is crazy. But perhaps he is not COMPETENT to deal with more complex cases, so maybe might as well. HE should not be calling himself a DOCTOR, that's for sure!!!

Dr Drell is a really caring doctor. He has helped me tremendously. As a new patent now it's hard to get in with him but as a repeat patient i am always pleased. And Beverly is the best as well, very helpful all the time. Thank you both for all your care over the years.
