Specialties

Dr. Eric J Ashman has the following 3 specialties

  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

  • 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.

Worse doctor I have ever encountered in my life.

He was rude & condescending. Told me I worried too much about my health & that my family med history had nothing to do with my health. Had me in tears. A horrible person.

Like every neurologist I have met, he has the same nonhumorous personality. I have met a few. This does not distract from his competence in anyway. He is very knowledgeable in the area of sleep disorders and seizures. His knowledge of available medications is wonderful and he works very well with my family physician. He is great at explaining options and treatment plans at different. He can adjust how he explains things to match the knowledge level of his patients. I was a paramedic and when I informed him of this he changed his language to match my medical knowledge level. He is very willing to let you adjust times of medication and will notake you feel like he is the dictator of your treatment plan but more like you are part of his team. I would recommend Dr. Ashman to friends and family.

Dr. Ashamn

Referred to Dr Ashman because of strange episode. He listened to me carefully, asked questions to get more details- often unusual in specialty doctors. He was friendly, easy to talk to- I appreciated his puttring me at ease and being respectful. This is how all doctors should treat their patients.
