Dr. Bernard R Drexinger Jr has the following 3 specialties
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
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.
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.

I have been seeing Dr. Drexinger for over 15 years. He is incredibly talented and knowledgable. He is very accomadating and makes his patients comfortable. Answers any and all questions, spends the neccessary time needed to explain if you don't understand, and answers all questions. His staff is fabulous and tries to accomadate everyone with appointments or whatever is needed. Though he normally runs behind schedule, it's definately worth it to see a quality doctor.

WOW! When I came in for my annual appointment, I couldn't believe my eyes. The office was clean, organized and I was greeted by a friendly voice! (Which was not my usual experience) What a change from the way things use to be. I found out that the entire staff is new! What a breathe of fresh air. I was expecting to be waiting hours, and I only had to wait 15-20 minutes, which is about normal for a doctors appointment wait. Dr. Drexinger still took the time address my questions and concerns. BIg changes in this office and all for the better!
Highly Recommend this Physician
