Specialties

Dr. Daniel B Kravitz has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

So-so

He seems to prescribe new, high cost meds if possible. That's OK but there is no follow up with recommended lab tests and his appointments are shallow even ignoring med side effects. Not a bad guy, just seems to have more important things on his mind. It took me years to figure this out.

Turned me off so much I took myself off my meds so I wouldn't have to see him

I went to him thinking he could help me with the depression I was battling after I had my stroke. Not only did he NOT help me with my depression, but he added to it the 2or 3 times I saw him, because he made me feel extremely embarrassed and self-conscious over the memory problems I was having post-stroke. I felt he was judging me negatively because I had trouble recalling names, some locations, and order of events. ,After the last office visit I just couldn't stand the thought of feeling belittled anymore, so I took myself off the meds he had prescribed me and therefore no longer be under his care. I now feel better without him or his meds.

I can't believe this guy is allowed to practice! I took my autistic son on for an appointment after waiting months. Before even making the appointment, I spoke to the office staff and sent over my sons medical records, which clearly state that he is autistic. When we got into the office, my son picked up a toy, which Dr.Kravitz then asked him not to touch (why would you have a toy that a child can't touch?). The dr. then suggested we go into a conference room with nothing to touch. As we were escorted into another room, the dr. Informed me that he has only ever seen one autistic child before and really doesn't know how to help us. Really? I waited months for that? For a dr. tell me he can't help us and be extremely rude? My daughter looked at me in horror (she's 10) and said, "Mom, lets get out of here".

Never Treated in such a rude manner by a professional

This man should not be allowed to practice medicine let alone hand out medication. He shows no concern for the people he is speaking with. He repeatly told us he did nothave much time to hurry along with our concern for the mentally retarded person we brought for an appointment. Shame on Wellspans part if they allow him to remain on their staff.
