Specialties

Dr. Eliot H Chodosh has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

15 years my Neurologist....

I've a patient of Dr. Chodosh's for over 15 years, and in that time I have moved twice, but I won't look for another neurologist closer to my home. I take the time to travel to his office because that is how much I trust him. He takes his time to listen and help me, and always returns my calls or answers questions promptly.

Excellent elder care

Dr. Chodosh is excellent. We went to him when my mother was having issues with her memory. He was thorough, compassionate and caring. Very respectful of her and her situation. I highly recommend him and cannot say enough good things about him.

Horrible patient manner. Gives Dr's a bad name.

This review is for Dr Mascellinos covering physician on the weekends. We've had the unfortunate need to interact with Dr. Eliot Chodosh, covering neurologist for Dr. Anne Marie mascellino on the weekends. The first time we spoke, my mother had a seizure at her Assisted Living as she suffers from Alzheimers Disease. We asked Dr. Chodosh to put a hold on her antipsychotic meds until Monday when we had an appointment with Dr. Mascellino. Instead of being symphathetic to our situation, he was curt and abrupt with no only us but also the nurse staff at the AL. He actually yelled at the nurse over the phone when he lost his patience with needing to fax over the order to hold the medication as the policy is they can't take verbal orders. To make a long story short, we had to speak to a dr. this weekend because my mom was having side effects to the new medication she is on and is heavily leaning. Dr. Chodosh again dismissed us by phone and would not speak to us and said there was nothing he could do. He asked this time to have the nurse call his answering service and gave us the run around.Dr. Chodosh represents all that is unkind about the medical profession. He has no patient manners nor the drive to be compassionate. I would not recommend him for the care of your loved one suffering from Alzheimers Disease when the disease is uncertain and you need to have patience in dealing with their care.

I have been Dr. Chodosh's patient for over 10 years. Even though I now live out of state, I still keep him involved in my medical treatments and will make the 4 hour trip back to see him when needed. He is awesome and wish I could bring him to where I live now!
