Specialties

Dr. Brian Kossak has the following 3 specialties

  • Child Neurology

    Pediatric neurologists diagnose neurological conditions in children as young as newborn, all the way up to adolescence. They can recommend treatment for sleep disorders, head injuries and headaches, but they also specialize in issues such as epilepsy, seizures and brain tumors.
    Their expertise in childhood development and the nervous system make them an excellent resource for parents of children with autism, cerebral palsy, mental development issues or learning disabilities. You can consult with a pediatric neurologist before, during and after diagnosis depending on your child's specific condition and needs.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Awful experience

It is beyond disgraceful that this doctor treats his patients the way they do. Going in for a sleep study with my 6-year-old niece who has multiple difficulties and a disorder called PBD, he was completely careless. He grabbed her head and bend her neck back so quickly she instantly began crying. When I told him she doesn’t like to be jolted back he was very aggravated. She does not like to be touched on her head because she has hearing aid and glasses, and becomes protective. I am not someone who typically would write a review but it disgusts me that people bother going into practice when they have to deal with patients and are this distrespectful. Obviously people wouldn’t be going to see him for help if they were doing okay, so to make the experience that should be helping you so unpleasant makes me wonder why he is still employed. As we left she said thank you, still upset, and he actually told her to be quiet. Do not see this doctor, and if you have the opportunity to see anyone else, it’s worth an extra drive.

Second Opinion

Did not even look at my son. Looked at the documentation and said he has ADD and needs meds. No tests no questions. Looks to me like he needs to get his numbers up. I got a second opinion and got a completely different result.
