Dr. David M Burke 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 thank dr Burke and staff for good care and treatment, he is very good as i have had a severe type of migraine while another md was treating me for tia's! it has been a challenge for me to find a med that agrees with me due to also having long term lyme disease ty all for helping meand not giving up on me.
Dr. Burke is a terrible doctor. He told me my problems were stressed related and that I needed therapy. He asked me to get an MRI to prove to me nothing was wrong. All he did to arrive at this conclusion was look in my eyes and ears and check my reflexes. After seeing another neurologist I was rushed in for a MRI and then rushed into surgery. Turns out I have a severe spinal cord injury. I would never recommend anyone to see him.
After being misdiagnosed for many years. I went to dr burke expecting the same answers as always. But he took the time to listen look at the scans and also put all the pieces together. He gave me a diagnosis and pushed to get my testing done before I lost my insurance. He is very caring and knows his stuff after 10 min of the appointment he knew what was wrong with me.
This Dr really listened to me and for the first time I had a good experience. He is a very nice person to have for a neurologist and I highly recommend to anyone.
