Specialties

Dr. David M Walzer 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.

Seriously worse off.

Once I was properly diagnosed I had a serious turn around. This from the brink of disaster from where I was place by Dr Walzer. If I were you I would look elsewhere.

Two Stars

Most of these reviews are from Bryn Mawr Hospital workers. Go see him as a patient. There's no way a person can be diagnosed as bipolar in one meeting. Impossible. A psychiatrist needs to know every dynamic about a person before he/she prescribes psychotropic medication and Dr. Walzer didn't do the minimum amount of analysis to understand the dynamics in my life. The subsequent visits were satisfactory at best and were barely worthy of his fee. He did not satisfactorily explain his reasons for prescribing certain medications and put me through hel with some medications without listening to the debilitating side effects I was having. He can't relate to the average person or doesn't want to relate. I'll also state the Hospital employees were weak at best - a few of them were rude and were itching to start arguments.
