Specialties

Dr. David C Marzulo 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.

This Dr. Didn't have the time of day for me. My primary care physician sent me to see him because I have muscular dystrophy and Dr. Marzulo had some experience with the disease. I also went there because I was in a great deal of pain and could barely walk. My pain, at that time, was particularly bad in my left hip/upper thigh area. I had a hip X-Ray that didn't show anything wrong there. My primary care physician gave me a one week prescription of pain medication hoping that I would see this neurologist in the meantime and be helped. He did a very brief exam and asked me what kind of muscular dystrophy I have. I told him I have limb girdle and he asked if I knew more. I told him I had genetic testing and was told it is limb girdle muscular dystrophy type 2A. He asked if I knew yet more and was frustrated with me when I had no more answers. He then asked if I had ever been told that I have a different kind (FSHD) which affects different parts of the body than the limb girdle dystrophy's do. I said, "No." He then examined my face (I guess just to be sure I didn't know what I was talking about.) I told him where I was having the most trouble and I was trying to explain that although I had everyday pain in my legs from my muscular dystrophy the pain that I was there for on that day was in my hip. He became impatient with me saying that since he is a neurologist he needed to know the exact spot of the pain. At that point my time was up and he started to gather his things and leave the room. I was in tears and said I didn't know what to do as I was in pain that was keeping me awake, I only had a one week prescription that was nearly gone and he said, "You have your pain medicine." I did move on and find physical therapy for my pain but came home one evening to find my entire left leg swollen. I went to the ER and was admitted with an ileo femoral DVT. Although the DVT was no ones fault I feel that it may have been found sooner if Dr. Marzulo had taken the time to listen to me and try to help. He instead, turned me away in tears. I was VERY highly dissatisfied and would never recommend that anyone go to him.

Dr. Marzulo - Professional, Knowledgeable and Courteous Neurologist

Extremely happy with Dr. Marzulo and would highly recommend his services as a neurologist. For years, Dr. M has been the most professional, knowledgeable and top-notch migraine specialist I've seen. He is a compassionate and understanding neurologist who has demonstrated continued empathy with my case of chronic migraines. He remains current in his field on all the latest treatments and medications and carefully prescribes what's needed while simultaneously avoiding migraines that come with too much medication. Through careful monitoring of diet, weight, medication and activity level, am having success with Botox treatment. All of Dr. M's staff are just as professional, kind and considerate. Dr. M. is extremely respectful of my time and doesn't keep me waiting. Highly recommend Dr. Marzulo for those who are excellent at following medication/treatment directions and are looking for an established professional.
