Specialties

Dr. Zeynep Altun 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 Altun has been treating my mother for some time now. I am very happy with the progress she has made. Dr. Altun is very professional, knowledgeable, compassionate and reliable. She is always available whenever we have a question about her treatment. She takes her time to listen to my mom. She is terrific. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a psychiatrist to trust.

Over the years I have seen multiple therapists and psychiatrists and I can say that Dr Altun is by far the most knowledgeable, caring, empathetic and helpful among them. She gave me the correct diagnosis and worked with me in finding the most effective medication regimen, taking my input into account at every decision. She made sure to coordinate my care with my other medical doctors. She is truly exceptional and helped me recover greatly.
