Specialties

Dr. Armen J Cherik has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Fraud

went in due to auto accident, was never asked for my insurance card, I thought that was always a requirement. I guess he knew he would get the money and cheat the insurance company.

Best neurologist you will find.

There is a reason Dr. Cherik is voted one of the top doctors in the US. He is professional, attentive, and most of all, intelligent. He's not your average doctor. When you seek out a neurologist, you don't expect a lollipop and a bright colored bandaid. You want someone like Dr. Cherik because you want the right diagnosis to be made. You want the right treatment and the right info. You actually feel you are in good hands.

Not nice Doc. Not nice at all....

We had requested this doctor to give a second opinion about the condition of our parent. He had visited her promptly that night and had given prognosis that she will die that very same night . This is four weeks passed and our Mother is still alive, her numbers have gone back to normal and now she has a fighting chance to take chimo for her cancer. The man has no bedside manner. he is rude and dismissive.
