Specialties

Dr. Igor M Cherches 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.

Wonderful Doctor

I have been seeing Dr. Cherches for 12 years for MS and find him to be very receptive and helpful. He never makes me feel rushed when I have questions. The office staff are very nice and he is always on time (or early) for appointments. Highly recommended.

Helpful, friendly and very caring -

Dr. Cherches spends time with his patients, listens to their concerns and asks appropriate questions to lead to his diagnosis. He also encourages details that will aid in determining his diagnosis. I have found him to be very compassionate and respectful, and he has a wonderful bedside manner. My only concern is that most of the time his front desk conveys test results and occasionally mispronounces words, which leads one to feel they might not understand what they are conveying, and that something can be missed in providing important details to the patients. Otherwise they are very courteous, friendly and helpful. The ease in setting up MRIs and CTs is fantastic. They follow up with every aspect of the diagnostic testing. One critique (helpful suggestion) is that if there is a finding on a report that needs follow up (tumor, negative test results, or questionable lab reports) either the doctor, nurse or nurse practitioner should convey the news, as any medical questions cannot be answered by the front desk staff. Also, the only other complaint was that there was no follow up when a diagnosis was made and the patient was requested to see a specialist for additional diagnostics. It would be highly beneficial for someone on staff to follow up in a week to see how the patient is doing. Otherwise you feel like you're being dropped like a hot potato when there is a problem diagnosis and additional medical testing/specialty diagnosis required. Otherwise, the staff and medical team are excellent.
