Specialties

Dr. Christopher P Eckstein 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.

  • 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.

#1 BEST NEUROLOGIST

I've seen many neurologists since I was diagnosed with MS in 1994, and Dr. Eckstein is by far the best Dr. I've ever seen. I am sad that he has left the area and can no longer be my doctor. I will miss him and hope he comes back to my area at some point.

Worst staff ever!

Worst staff to deal with ever! My husband liked him but his staff is terrible! Can't get return calls even when calling office manager. I hope he know why kind of staff he has his patients dealing with. I am getting referred to another Dr.

Dr. Eckstein and staff

I was diagnosed with MS this month. Dr. Eckstein was highly recommended as the person I should see for a second opinion . I found him to be very thorough, patient, and understanding. I have only seen him once so far but plan to make him my neurologist for the long run. His staff was very nice and caring. My wait time was very short and he spent a good bit of time speaking with me. So far, so good.

MS SPECIALIST

Doctor Eckstein specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of MS. My mother had MS. I wish he would have been around when she was alive. My mother in law was diagnosed with MS and after a year of begging she she got a 2nd and 3rd opinion. Doctor Eckstein was the 3rd and agreed with the 2nd and reviewed not only test that Doctor Hecker ordered, but copies of all MRI ' S going back like 5 years. He was very thorough.
