Specialties

Chamindra Konersman has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Myotonic Dystrophy

She provides exceptional and individualized care. She is compassionate, caring and extremely knowledgeable. She is responsive to questions and spends time really listening and assimilates this information for accuracy of diagnosis and courses of action. I could not feel more confident in the care she provides and will continue to provide. I am extremely grateful.

No Diagnosis

After a detailed examination, numerous blood tests, and an EMG and muscle biopsy, she didn't have much to say. Despite all this work, I thought she was lazy, had pre-judged my condition, didn't do any homework, and only seconded what was already in my chart. What a waste of time and money! I saw her at Froedtert MCW in Milwaukee, WI.

Extremely Condescending and Disrespectful

I've seen 2 other neurologists (in other states). While they are not known for their bedside manner, Dr. Konersman is horrible. I've never felt so degraded by a doctor. She walked into the office with an idea about what was going on and she didn't listen to what I was saying. It took almost 6 weeks to get in to see her, at which point I was feeling much better, so my her physical exam looked good. She even separated my husband and I and gave both of us the third degree about him being abusive which was totally unrelated to the issue at hand and extremely out of line. At the end she was completely unhelpful. She said, I'm not saying you're crazy which was exactly what she was saying. Do not see this doctor if you have an undiagnosed conditionshe will just send you to a psychiatrist.
