Dr. Bridget T Carey has the following 3 specialties
- Neuromuscular Medicine
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.
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.

My brother was desperate for help and this woman ignored my mother's emails for months and did not answer until I emailed her saying she needed to call my mother immediately. She repeatedly said that she would bring his case up to other professionals and never did. She ordered an MRI and never got back to us with the results. She was upset that I called her out on her lack of communication and said she didn't specialize in what my brother needed help with and didn't want to handle his case anymore. I was in shock that she waited months to say this instead of telling us when she realized she couldnt help. She didn't recommend another professional who could help so we were left to find a doctor on our own. My mother and brother were in tears and she did nothing to help and made endless empty promises. I would never recommend this woman to anyone and cannot believe she is allowed to have a license.
Very nice, well-meaning doctor when you have her focused on you one on one. As soon as you leave, however, she and her staff will do nothing of the things they had promised. Whether it was to bring up my case to the dept. head, or to research the right genetic test to run and get its approval, or even just return a urgent call right before scheduled surgery. None of these things happened, even after seeing her for two years. I think the combination effect is that Dr. Carey treats it very much as a 9-5 job, and her staff make it almost impossible to contact her in between appointments. Inefficiency and inaccurate tests result. (I was told a specific test had been run by her office, but a doctor would later tell me that the test she had run was not the xxxxxxx test that she had told me it was. Long story. There are better neurologists around, though they are tough to find. If you strike out in NYC, consider trying Johns Hopkins in Baltimore.
Takes several months of phone calls to get her to return a call requesting MRI results that she sent me for. Does not seem to care about patients at all. Doctors are supposed to be caring and want to help others, when a patient calls it should not take 3 months to get a return phone call. And her secretary would always say, "she'll call you back tomorrow."
