Specialties

Dr. Cynthia L Bodkin 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.

Dr Bodkin misdiagnosed me saying my problem was bad sleep hygiene. Saw 2nd doc who quickly prescribed medication solving problem. When Dr. B heard of this she called and cussed out the other doctor for interfering. Bodkin also ok'd use of melatonin then denied it in front of me and visiting resident, yelling at me and demanding to know who recommended it. I was ready to walk out. She was incompetent and unprofessional. I dispose this woman.

A disgraceful Mayo trained doctor -- condescending and plain awful.

Dr. Bodkin is very condescending and lets uses her Mayo trained body do a disservice to medicine. She does not listen to the patient, downplays all of their symptoms and does not review medical history before seeing the patient. I highly recommend avoiding Dr. Bodkin. She asked me to list my debilitating symptoms. She then said, "EVERYONE has those symptoms. Maybe you need to spend less times focusing on your symptoms." She told this to me - a man who went from working 60+ hours a week, coaching baseball, taking family vacations, and volunteering in my community to being virtually disabled. She is quite possibly the rudest human being I have ever met. She is proof that the greatest education in the world cannot make up for lack of empathy, a poor bedside manner, a large ego, and a condescending attitude.

I too feel as though she has a terrible bedside manner. I have Narcolepsy in which she reconfirmed with further testing. And has proceeded to tell me that i am drug seeking and needed to get a grip. What kind of professional says that. She is extremely difficult to get ahold of and i have had to speak with the nurse only. She made herself available for first visit and phone call to tell me to get a grip. I would not recommend her at.this time.
