Specialties

Dr. Ellen D Drexler 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.

The Best

I have seen many Doctors in my years but she has thusfar gone beyond her scope of work for the care of her patients. I rebuttle any negative coments made from anyone. Her staff is most kind and professional. I nothing negitive to say of Dr. Drexler or her staff. They treat you with the best care, as if you were their only patient. I highly recommend her and have to all my family, friends and even strangers.

Four Stars

Dr.Drexler is a good doctor. As to the office staff on 65th Street, most unresponsive and not caring. It take several days to finally get an answer. When it comes to obtaining your file copies it is a nightmare. People from medical records could not care less about your needs. They are creating various obstacles and do not take their time to provide detailed instructions to doctors and patients. They even lie that fax numbers are incorrect and do everything they can to release your information as late as possible. Sorry for such review but I hope it helps future patients.
