Dr. Emile M Hiesiger 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.

Dr. Heisigers multiple level epidural procedure ,helped me avoid a surgical cervical fusion . My pain level was reduced by at least 75% and range of motion returned to almost normal..Its been decades since I felt this good l
I saw Dr Hieiger after seeing 17 different doctors in different specialties for severe pain supposedly related to a kidney infection that had been going on for over a year and left me barely able to breathe and walk, and unable to wear a winter coat or even be touched on my arm. Dr H. figured out that my nerves were mis firing and with a combination of medication, non-invasive lifr-changing procedures, I am able to live my life to the fullest--cooking, dancing, exercising, working in a demanding job, and traveling. He gave me my life back.
By the time I saw Dr. Hiesiger, I had a rare autoimmune disease for 20 years with verifiable disabilities. When I saw him for new neurological complications her ordered MRIs of brain and spine, but when I, a deaf woman as the result of my disease, asked to discuss the results via my TDD phone and relay operator he refused to return my calls or discuss the results of these expensive tests. When I got a copy of my report that he prepared, I read how he took it upon himself to question long term disabilities, the report was full of falsehoods too, and underscored his incompetence in understanding various serious manifestations of an autoimmune disease that affects the CNS system including brain vasculitis. At the time I saw Dr. Hiesiger, I was experiencing a life threatening critical neurological long term flare. In his report, he suggested to my rheumatologist that he suspected psychological overlay. This was NOT a scientific fact but a way and means to cover for his limitations as a neurologist beyond a pain management specialists. I have since discovered neurologists who have understandings of rare neurological conditions-and my condition is treated as such-a serious disorder. I am a tolerant patient and do appreciate the rareness of my disease, but when a physician covers for his absent knowledge by attacking the patient who is suffering, the patient who has already been diagnosed in NYC by renowned specialist 20 years prior with a complex disorder that, if he read any scientific paper, would have understood how my manifestations were indeed apart of the syndrome he is not acting in the good faith of his profession. On top of that, he refused to speak via the relay which is a violation of ADA and the law that requires reasonable accommodations and, yes, respect of patient. I appreciate finding this space to state my experience,
Dr Hiesiger is a knowledgable and skilled physician. He was able to diagnose and successfully treat a chronic pain condition that was missed by several other physicians and pain specialists. He conducts a comprehensive examination and history, orders the necessary studies, thoroughly explains the diagnosis and treatment options and performs life-altering, non-invasive pain procedures. The quality of my life has greatly improved since I have been in Dr Hiesiger's care.
