Specialties

Dr. Frank E Michener has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Staff is horrible....not looking forward to going back, but I like the Doc

I like the Doctor, very personable and concerned. Listened to my concerns and thats hard to find. However, the reason they only received 3 stars was because of the receptionist, not sure if she's the office manager but very rude over the phone and in person. She has made me so turned off to this office. Too bad I will be going back to see the doctor and will have to deal with her.

Dr. Michener is truly exceptional

I would highly recommend Dr. Michener to any prospective patient needing his medical services -- he has been truly exceptional and outstanding in terms of the excellent and very helpful treatment plans and professional medical advice that he has provided. Dr. Michener has a very caring, compassionate, and professional bedside manner as a medical provider, and his guidance and treatments have been invaluable in helping me improve my medical condition and outlook, especially where other similar doctors I have seen have really let me down in the past. I gave a 5-star recommendation across-the-board for all the available categories, since he is definitely one of the best of the very best in his field, in my humble opinion and experience with him as my doctor.

An Excellent Doctor

Dr. Michener treated my children and me for ADD many years. He is an excellent doctor with a warm, caring manner. I never had a problem getting call backs. I never had to wait more than 10-15 minutes to see him. I would recommend him highly to anyone seeking expert advice on ADD , specifically and other related conditions as well.
