Specialties

Dr. David J Dickoff 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.

Disappointing

Doctor keeps you waiting for HOURS. This has happened numerous times. Office staff has made mistakes and is unapologetic. I understand he is a good doctor, but not worth the hassle. We will be going to a different neurologist.

OMG I'm Still Stunned!

I walked out of his office beyond happy. Endlessly talking to my husband the whole ride home how great he was. No joke. An issue happened with insurance on a migraine medicine I needed. They needed an authorization from rhe doctor before they would release it. I have a bad migraine. 5 days so far. So my husband handle calling to tell his office and the receptionist was not nice at all. Said she might not be able to get to it today because she leaves at 2. It was only 11am. My husband stressed I need it for the mugraine and she got very arrogant. A couple of hours later, my husband called the insurance and explained situation. They released my medication but the doctor needed to authorize the next day. My husband called the next morning to give them the number to call to authorize. Again, very nasty. Then asked if the doctor could call us back because I had a question about the medication cause my head wasnt better at all. She said Well he is busy right now so he might not call you till maybe tomorrow night. He eventually called and when my husband explained about the receptionist, he went off on us saying that we werent even in the system yet and we are doubting what he prescribed. And he didnt appreciate my husband being the go around. He doesnt like go arounds. Wh...what? lol Long story shorter. Never in my freakin life have I EVER experienced a doctor with such lack of professionalism. DO NOT GO HERE!!! So now, head still hurts, still on meds for a few more days and have to find another doctor! As I said in title. I'm stunned!!!

Worst experience ever

I never write reviews but in this in this case I feel it's important. I took my teenager daughter to have a check up last year We had to wait over one hour in this noisy, chaotic waiting room which shares the same room with the office, TV at high volume and employees talking on the phone with no privacy. The Dr spent enough time with my daughter doing the necessary tests while mistreating his assistant in front of us. Quite embarrassing. When we went back for the follow up, despite the fact that the neurologic test was negative, he prescribed some strong psycho drugs on the assumption that my daughter's pain problem in her hip was due to some mental psychological unbalance. I left the office and I called him the following week to get more explanation about the diagnosis and the drugs. When I expressed my doubts about giving such strong drugs to my 17 year old daughter he started screaming , really loud and he wouldn't stop for many minutes. I didn't care so much because I had already decided I would stop seeing him anyway but after hanging up with him I talked to the secretary asking if the doctor had some mental problems, was on drugs or simply bi polar. She didn't answer but she sounded like she would get these questions and complaints all the time. I don't understand how such an unethical and unprofessional physician can still work and see patients.
