Specialties

Dr. Denis A Ostrovskiy has the following 3 specialties

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • 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.

I was sent to Dr. Ostrovskiy to have a deep skin biopsy. He was condescending and disparaging throughout his high speed interaction with me, even making fun of me because I DARED use the word "allodynia." I needed these results quite badly, as my husband and I were house hunting and I desperately needed to know if the weakness and allodynic pain I had in my extremities were part of my fibromyalgia or, as I was beginning to fear, evidence of a progressive neuropathy. Frankly, could I buy a house with stairs or would that be a disasterous decision? This issue was communicated to the doctor. 2 weeks later, my rheumatologist had not received any results and my husband and I had become desperate; our house was sold and we had fallen in love with a house with stairs. I spent time every single day calling the offices of both doctors. Suddenly, the tone changed at Dr. Ostrovskiy's office. My results were in, but the staff couldn't tell me. He was forbidding it. And he was refusing to tell me himself! I have to assume that he didn't feel that my insurance company had paid him adequately for his biopsy work, so giving me the (obviously bad) results was not his problem. 5 DAYS. 5 days of KNOWING the results were bad, but being refused the facts. 5 DAYS of holding onto a house that I will never be able to have. 5 DAYS of holding up THAT family also...but that didn't matter to the Doctor. My test results were finally shared with me BY MY RHEUMATOLOGIST, who is not a neurologist, so she had to look the numbers up. They are abysmal. They are life changing. I am following up with a different neurologist. We are looking for a ranch home. Dr. Ostrovskiy; I have no idea why you felt the need to withhold such important information. I have no idea what justified your cruelty; I told your staff for 5 days that I already knew the results were bad, I was just begging for the results so I could steer the rest of my life in the right direction. They were forbidden to give me the results. Whatever "point" you were trying to make, possibly with my rheumatologist in specific or other doctors in general, was lost in your cruelty to the PATIENT who was caught in the middle of a pissing contest. I have no idea what drives your behavior. If this is a pattern in your life, you may want to talk to a trained professional about it.

Caring, Thorough

Dr. Ostrovskiy found the cause of my complex symptoms after 1.5 years of misdiagnoses by orthopedists. After a thorough physical exam, he squeezed me in for an MRI the same day. Called me at home 1.5 days later with results and name of highly qualified surgeon for a diagnosis that had no other recourse. He persevered and urged me not to delay as doing so would put me in jeopardy - an aggressive stance confirmed by another neurologist and 2 neurosurgeons. Dr. Ostrovskiy can appear brusk at the outset, but don't let that put you off. He is an excellent diagnostician and practitioner.

Do not recommend for Dementia/Alzheimer's symptoms

Did not spend enough time with patient, my boyfriend, suffering from memory loss/confusion. We saw this dr. over 2 years. Struggled to get any diagnosis from him. He dismissed my boyfriend's symptoms, said he could spot an Alzheimer's patient from across the street. Turns out after seeing 5 more physicians that my boyfriend does have Alzheimer's. This dr. suggested seeing a neuro-psychologist for an evaluation, we did. He did not pass along her recommendation that my boyfriend stop driving. We did not know about this. Surprise, he had a serious car accident. I don't recommend this dr. for anything Dementia/Alzheimer's related. It is not his strength. We had much better care at NYU Langone memory center.
