Specialties

Dr. Frank R Berenson 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.

Terrible experience

Dr Berenson is arrogant and has no empathy for his pediatric patients. He treats them like their concerns about having epilepsy are ridiculous! We won't go back to him, there are lots of good pediatric neurologists than to waste our time with him.

I was a patient of Dr. Berenson for about a year He.made extremely careless mistakes. For example, I was supposed to be receiving occipital nerve blocks and trigger point injections, but the nurse came in with Botox and said that was on the order, even though we had never discussed it. Dr. Berenson also put me on 70mg of Prednisone (at age 16) and then did not wean me at all, which led to horrible ear infections, nose bleeds, trouble breathing, joint and muscle pain/stiffness that lasted months.

Not particularly forthcoming or timely with information in critical situations. Does not have facilities to accommodate parents and little children in exam rooms. Shockingly filthy room for EEG's....dirt visible on floor and elsewhere throughout exam area.
