"I am immensely pleased with the assistance SPECT has lent to management
of my 46 patients who have had brain scans. In combination with a
thorough clinical history, the scans help me recognize brain regions
needing attention and provide the patient with tangible evidence of the
syndromes and disorders we are addressing. Very powerful. I
think every effort should be made to get SPECT scans, just like any
other functional assessment of organ function in medicine, to inform
management. Sleep studies, bone scans, heart scans, sonograms, and
many other studies help clarify what is present and what needs

"I have had the privilege of working with Dr. Robert Kohn Since 1994. We
have worked together in state of Illinois residential, community mental
health and private practice settings. Over the past 7 1/2 years I have
consistently been impressed with Dr. Kohn's medical and clinical
abilities. Trained in both neurology and psychiatry, he has a very
sophisticated understanding of the workings of the human brain/mind. His
clinical expertise is further complimented by his sophistication with
regard to the use of Neuro-imaging Brain SPECT technology. His unique
approach toward treatment is, in my opinion, of great benefit to his
patients. He is committed to a holistic treatment philosophy and
regularly enlists the support of providers of other related treatment
disciplines (i.e. Psychologists, Cranial sacral / Osteopathic
manipulation physicians , Eastern Medicine doctors who provide
strategies such as Acupuncture and Chinese herbs). Dr. Robert Kohn is a
very intelligent, clinically astute and caring mental health care
provider, who effectively utilizes a multidimensional approach to
treatment. I am proud of my professional affiliation with this very
accomplished psychiatrist / neurologist. "

"You have made a believer
out of me.
The results of the SPECT were able to confirm a medical disorder
that was not apparent.
The consultation with my patient and the medication has changed
her life. Thank you."

"As a psychologist in practice for nearly
25 years and the mother of a seriously mentally handicapped adult
daughter, I have found Dr. Kohn's approach using the SPECT scan to be
extremely helpful in clearly identifying and accurately diagnosing
mental disorders including, bipolar, attention deficit disorder, drug
and alcohol effects, and other diseases.
His approach to medication for patients as well as my daughter
has been outstanding and much more helpful than some other approaches. I highly recommend using the SPECT scan and his approach to

using SPECT on a number of my patients, I realized it�s an invaluable
diagnostic and therapeutic tool to clarify complex diagnostic issues on
brain disorders, and especially provide an accurate focus for treatment. Dr. Kohn�s expertise in use of
the SPECT supported the therapeutic approaches I put in place for my
patients and resulted in dramatic changes for them."
Laurie Swift, LCSW
"I was impressed with the clinical insights that were
gained from Dr. Kohn�s use of the SPECT technology in diagnosing
patients with multiple brain and behavioral disorders. This
has lead the way for me to use SPECT more often, especially with
patients suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder,
Depressive Illness; Bipolar Affective Disorder, Schizophrenia and

"Dr. Kohn�s approach to treating individuals with ADD/ADHD has made a
world of difference to my daughter.
Using the SPECT technology, Dr. Kohn was accurately able to
assess my daughter�s condition and then treat her with appropriate
medication and counseling. Children deserve the chance to grow and be happy who they are
as the individuals. Not a
day goes by that my family and I are not forever grateful for Dr. Kohn�s
care in successfully treating my daughter�s disorder."

"I feel quite strongly that the SPECT contributed to helping Dr. Kohn
diagnose my depression and ADD.
Dr. Kohn showed me the areas of my brain from the SPECT photos
that had abnormal activity.
He explained how these areas altered my mood and adversely affected my
personality. It was enough
to convince me to try new medication that he prescribed and additional
counseling. I recommend
anyone suffering from ADD to use the SPECT technology to help them with
diagnoses and treatment."
"Suffering from ADD, I met several doctors for treatment for my
disorder. Not satisfied
with the results, I made an appointment to meet Dr. Kohn. His approach to treating me was
totally different from the other doctors I met with. He prescribed the SPECT exam that I knew nothing about. He explained how the SPECT
worked and how useful it was in diagnosing and treating individuals with
brain disorders. The SPECT
showed me exactly what was happening in my brain. Through this exam, Dr. Kohn was
able to prescribe medication that improved my condition. Today I�m not the person I was a
year ago, thanks to Dr. Kohn."
