About Dr. Howard R Belkin MD
Dr. Howard R Belkin has the following 2 specialties
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.
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 Good Doctor

The TRUTH ALWAYS COMES OUT.
Self-verified patient of Dr. Howard R Belkin - Posted on December 23rd, 2018
(The Belkins always get webpages to remove my reviews? Why? What are they hiding?) His wife ruined my life. Lying to me about ECT; not telling me I would lose my mind - suffer brain damage - end up on disability for the rest of my life. These two doctors are greedy and narcissistic. The office you go to see them in was built off the damaged brains of prior patients. (Dr. B. Belkin fired me as a client the second after she milked my insurance for everything and I was no longer of use for her). If you want the truth of what happens when you allow your brains in the hands of these two torturers people.... READ ectjustice.org or ectstories.com Better yet, google ECT machine manufacturer puts " machine causes permanent brain damage" on the warning label, finally. So, either the Belkins knew about the brain damage and didn't care or they did not know, which means they're "crappy doctors." Stay Safe - Seek Other Solutions (for depression and anxiety). ECT has caused more suicides than it's ever prevented.
Barbara and Howard Belkin Hurt Me
Self-verified patient of Dr. Howard R Belkin - Posted on July 19th, 2018
Not recommended - husband and wife (listed as a team). Dr. Barbara Belkin hurt me. Do NOT let them near your brain. She forced me into the psychiatric hospital and lied about the damage electroshock really caused. I went to her for help with depression. A month later, I left the psych ward, a zombie with permanent brain damage from ECT and on Social Security Disability for life. I can not hold a job due to brain damage from ECT, resulting in no short-term memory and the cognitive skills of a flea. I am living in poverty (with a Masters Degree) and she's rich. I think people should know this. I am no longer ashamed of what she did to me, I am ready to fight in plain sight. My life, future, and happiness were taken away by her. Getting justice for ALL victims is my sole purpose in life, I have nothing else.
