Specialties

Dr. Erik J Entin 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.

Two Stars

Collectively, the office staff is the rudest group I've ever had to deal with...all the time, not just an isolated incident...and its pervasive. Insensitive, unprofessional, discourteous are traits common to most of the staff. Dr. is hit or miss. Sometimes he has time to answer questions, other times you are dismissed with a wave of the hand.

Maybe he Was a Good Doctor Once, But Terrible Now

He actually is licensed to practice medicine? Misdiagnosed me (which was confirmed by two other neurologists), yet he dug in his heels and refused to acknowledge his fallibility. Did not describe the procedure he recommended. He got indignant when I told him his description of my symptoms did not match what my symptoms actually were. It was as if he was looking at another patient's chart and ignoring what I was telling him.
