Dr. Victor D Kassicieh has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

The office called me to schedule because my regular doctor wanted me to see this doctor for my headaches. I was able to get in the same week and they took my insurance information over the phone to be sure they were on my plan. The doctor answered all my questions and gave me a treatment plan that has reduced my pain and given me my life back. Instead of staying in bed with migraines several days a month, I can go about my life and enjoy my grandkids again. I can't wait to enjoy the holidays!
This Dr. has done more for me than all of the other 26 drs. I have been too; the reason for the 3 out of 4 stars is the fact that Dr. K spends whatever time he deems is necessary for each patient; accurate diagnosis - I'm not sure that any one dr. has been able to discern a specific diagnosis as there are so many different issues that inflict pain; his bedside manner has greatly improved the more that I get to know him and vice versa - I am now able to share with him different aspects of various illnesses and not only does he listen to what I am saying but tries to not only treat me but also to explain why we should or shouldn't do something. His staff is so very loving and helpful all of the time and this is the first dr. that does not put me on narcotics; clinics, other drs. had me on so many narcotics that it ulcerated my colon. I spoke with Dr. K about this and was pleasantly surprised that he totally understood what I was talking about and we are looking a alternative solutions - even though they may only be temporary, anytime I can "get away from the chronic pain" is a blessing. He has even gone so far as to discuss other "issues of chronic pain" that I may be experiencing that may or not be totally within his realm of specialty but he has helped and advised me as to the next steps I should take that I can finally say that there are now days in my world where I can adjust the level of pain because not only am I learning to deal with same, but know that I can call on Dr. Kassicieh to help me through the worst of times with small "fixes" but also with the knowledge that he will make things at least bearable for me;he is willing to work with me and any other dr. that I may have so that for once, we are all on the same page and accepting of others drs. specialties to do what will be right for ME, the patient without worrying about who made the correct "diagnosis". Dr. K is very knowledge-able not only about his field but also can advise me on other "illnesses" - I truly believe that if I had not found Dr. Kassicieh, I am not sure where/what my life would be like - because at least now, there is hope that I WILL have those good days when I can even attend some special event and for the last 5 years, that has not been the case and all the treatments have done nothing but destroy the body that I have. Lori, his assistant deserves an A+ for always listening to me and trying to offer solutions/call in meds. or whatever it may take just to try to get thru the night/day. Dr. K, I thank you for believing in me and my ailments and truly appreciate all you try and do for me; thanks for being a part of my world! (And please understand, if there was a 3.5 star rating, you would certainy get it - I have never ever given anything or anyone a 5 star rating cause I believe that there is always room for more knowledge or a change - but Dr. K is about the best that there could be!)
