About Dr. Darrick J Alaimo MD
Dr. Darrick J Alaimo 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.

I waited two months to be seen by this specialist. Two months functioning with excruciating pain, little sleep, heavy duty pain killers and muscle relaxers. A week before my appointment the office called to say they were missing a piece of information from my doctor and cancelling the appointment . My primary care physician was off that day and Dr. Alaimo's office refused to hold my appointment for 24 hours so I could provide the missing information. He may be a good doctor but I won't risk being treated so badly again. I believe every patient deserves better.

I have been seeing neurologist since I was a young adult . I have never had a pleasant experience before seeing Dr.Alaimo . From speaking with Jen on the phone prior to appointment to having a EMG test with Dr.Alaimo and his PA . They were very easy to talk to with a great personality and sense of humor . They took their time to explain everything and made me feel comfortable in every aspect .I have two grown children and three grandchildren , I would not hesitate but would almost insist if a neurologist was needed they their only option would be to see Dr.Darrick Alaimo.

BRAVO to you all and my sincere thanks.
