Dr. Barry L Edelman 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.

Poor response time. I had to message him multiple times over the span of a week to get a response from him. Very unprofessional. I reported it to my insurance as well.

Do NOT schedule an appointment with him

He will not return phone calls. He will only text and when I asked to switch the time of an appointment he said, "I need to pay bills and I would have made plans to go out." This is beyond unprofessional, rude and incredibly disgusting behavior.

I would certainly recommend Dr. Edelman. I can recall the death of my mother and how difficult it was for my siblings and I but, Dr.Edelman made it acceptable and tolerable for me.

Warning! Do not see this Doctor! First and for most he will only take you once he makes sure you can pay him! Then God forbid you have to cancel or reacheduale you are asked by him to not come back! Shameful that so many people depend on good doctors and will have no choice but to get this one! Thankfully I learned very early on how bad this guy is. His other reviews speak for themselves!
