Specialties

Dr. Carl W Bazil has the following 4 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.

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • 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.

Five Stars

The doctor takes care of my 23 yr old son. My son felt comfortable and he felt that the doctor understood his concerns, he never got that feeling from his prior neurologist. I also have hope for my son, I havent felt that in a long time.

too rigid, too intellectual

Has trouble admitting if he doesn't know something, so self-confident is willing to diagnose on half the data and be wrong,low on empathy, high on professional competitiveness and hubris.Very smart, but not always very good. There's more to beings good doctor than being very smart. He's ambitious, not a clinician's clinician;a perfect academic.

Good Doctor, Terrible Follow UP

Seems like a good doctor and reputation. Was helpful in figuring out what tests needed to be completed. When it came to getting approval, even though they had been notified by insurance that testing was approved they continued to tell me that I was not until I called the insurance company and had to get the authorization number myself - minor but still dissapointing. The real issue was in trying to follow with the doctor with a condition that was causing me a great deal of stress, and being told the doctor will call you tomorrow and then again tomorrow and so on, until i called hourly and was finally able to speak to the doctor. Follow up was very disappointing and whether intentional or not, shows apathy on his part. A doctor who appears not to care, even if he truly does, is not someone I would recommend to others.

Worth traveling to see him

I live in Florida, and I would, if necessary, travel to New York to see Dr Basil. This I did two years ago.
