Specialties

Dr. Zelko Leon 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.

great doctor

I have several different doctors for my ADHD and Bi-Polar type 2 over the years he is one of the best. the wait time is great I had on in Kansas City I waited 3 to 4 hours for!! He is very helpful I sever headaches and I have photosenitivity now he turns off the lights in the office for me. I may need to move for my work and one of the things holding me back is I don't want to lose him as my doctor. Doctors like him are hard to find I should know I've had Psychiatrists in 4 different states and only 2 were worth anything. He is one of them.
