Specialties

Dr. Dale J Lange 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.

He’s a lousy doctor who doesn’t put in much effort

His bedside manner is poor. He didn’t really listen to my problems and stopped trying when he couldn’t diagnose me.

A Balanced View

Dale Lange is an expert in his field. He conducts research on treatments for ALS. He teaches residents. He has interest in the challenge of each new complex case & attempts to accommodate new consults from around the world quickly. He is generally extremely compassionate, kind, & gentle with a new patient. With established patients, it can be a bit different. Physicians are subject to the same emotions & flaws that laypeople are, especially when fatigued & overworked. If you have a sensitive personality & catch him on the wrong day, it might be tough. He does prefer to remain solely focused on neuromuscular issues rather than general neurology. He values multi-disciplinary care but does have strong opinions of his own. Overall, he has good motives, generally takes his time, & he has chosen to dedicate his life to helping a tough-luck patient population. He is willing to think outside the box, which can be a rare find in today's world of managed care & protocols. At the end of the day, though, doctors are not God. Some things can't be fixed.Choose wisely.
