Specialties

Dr. Harris A Frankel 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.

VERY arrogant. I asked a simple question about WHY he thought I should do a certain test -- I was just trying to educate myself -- and he said "I'm not going to argue with you" and shut me down. I am a physics professor and not an idiot... it was a simple question but he was too arrogant to answer it. Too bad.

When calling after hours in an emergency

When calling after hours, and in an emergency you have to dial a separate number to get to a doctor. There should be a better way to get to a doctor than dialing a bunch of numbers ago get help. Move to the 21st century doctor.

I saw this doctor for a serious medical condition. This neurologist did not diagnose me; instead, he suggested that my symptoms were not real. After seeing neurologist, I went to another doctor and received a diagnosis and treatment that was successful. It irked me that this neurologist not only did not care about finding a diagnosis, but also that he demeaned me the entire time I was in his office. After ordering many expensive tests, he did not want to follow up or even review my results. I would not recommend this doctor at all.
