Dr. David J Anick 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.

not for me

I like the Marino center, but Dr. Anick isn't someone I am going to continue to see. I am going to search for another mental-health doctor. He has a calm manner but I didn't feel particularly comfortable with him. I mentioned a significant, on-going concern of mine and he dismissed it. I explained that this issue is "getting the best of me" and that it worries me, but unfortunately he didn't see it as a priority. I understand there are a lot of questions and introductory processes to get through with a new doc-patient relationship. That being said, I didn't really feel that the questions did anything to instill confidence in his judgement or ability. Not trying to be negative towards him, but we were not compatible so I look forward to finding someone else that I "click" with so that I can have a more productive appointment and treatment plan. For some positives - Dr. Anick did spend the full hour with me, so he doesn't seem like the type of doctor to rush you. He provided his phone numbers and seemed that he would be accessible, which I think is valuable.

Four Stars

I've only visited Dr Anick twice as a check-up while I was transitioning off meds prescribed elsewhere. He seemed caring and thorough, asked lots of questions that felt very on-point to me. Felt very approachable and not judgmental in the least. I'd be comfortable seeing him for ongoing care.
