Dr. David R Gendernalik has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

This guy needs to retire
Self-verified patient of Dr. David R Gendernalik - Posted on September 24th, 2018
I left this doctors office in Detroit feeling worse than when I walked-in. I felt frustrated, ignored and uncared for. This guy doesn’t listen closely and didn’t offer any medication counseling...just handed me a prescription. He really should be treating people at a place where patients are in dire need for physical and emotional care.

Very rude and completely unsympathetic. I told him I didn’t think my medications were working for me, he suggested upping the dosage which we’d already tried before and when I said I didn’t think that was a good idea he got irritated and raised his voice saying other medications weren’t a good option and in a condescending way asked what I would like to do. He asked if I wanted trileptol without explaining what it was or anything about the drug. Didn’t give me much chance to explain my symptoms and dismissed my complaints. He sent me home with no instructions on how to discontinue my current medications and made me feel stupid.
Dr. Gendernalik needs to see a psychiatrist
Self-verified patient of Dr. David R Gendernalik - Posted on September 30th, 2012
Dr. Gendernalik was horribly rude and unfeeling. I recently accompanied my husband to his first psych appointment with this horrible man. Thank goodness I was there to support him. I am scared to think that he is left alone with anyone who is mentally ill and/or has low self esteem. He made ME feel horrible. My husband had a closed head injury and the dr. was irritated because he was slow to answer his questions. At the end of the visit, the dr. got up and left us sitting in his office and did not walk us out. I should have expected this to go poorly, because when he came to get us from the waiting room he did not wait for us and practically ran down the hall to his office. We had to call down the hallway because we were not sure where he had gone... Has almost completely turned us off of using a psychiatrist. Maybe just stick with a counselor from now on...
