Specialties

Dr. Yaroslav Kushnir 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.

Worst doctor I have ever experienced!

Dr. Kushnir refuses to be seen in the light of day. He sneaks around in the middle of the night making his rounds. He absolutely, flat out refuses to speak to any family members, even though he promises to and has all the official releases & permission to do so. He gives serious sleep inducing meds to patients at 9:00 or 10:00 p.m., and then shows up about 2-3 hours later to see how they're doing. Well how do you think they're doing?!! They are asleep! duh! So then he can leave without dealing with the patient or any one else for that matter! He is horrible & should have retired many years ago!!

I never met a better psychiatrist in my 30 years as a social worker in San Diego County. He even made a home call to see a dear friend of mine, who needed assistance.
