Dr. Janice M Massey has the following 3 specialties
- Neuromuscular Medicine
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.

An absolutely horrible doctor. I guess she missed the class on basic hygiene in medical school, like wearing gloves , washing her hands, and wearing a reasonably clean coat...specially if she's going to put a needle in my body. The rooms over there are just filthy and disgusting. I am not sure what exactly is going on in that place..but sure thing is, I am never going there again. Never.
I was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis and put on medication before ever seeing Dr. Massey. She was extremely condescending, rude, and unwilling to listen to reason and logic. She promptly told me that I didn't have MG (??) and to stop taking my meds (prior to taking them, I was in terrible shape, and I was pretty much on a liquid diet because I couldn't swallow solid food, thanks to the weakness of my throat muscles). I remember scoffing at her "advice" and telling her that I suppose she wants me to go back to being unable to function like a normal human being. Nothing I said got through to her. She chalked my symptoms up to "stress" and "anxiety" just because my antibody test came back negative, which happens quite often, I might add (and as a supposed MG "expert", she should know that). Not to mention that two other neurologists diagnosed me with it, and the medication made a massive difference. She actually had the nerve to tell me to stop taking my meds and see a therapist! Unbelievable. Yes, Dr. Massey, I'm sure the ptosis, double vision, dysphagia, slurred speech, and generalized muscle weakness were all caused by "stress". This woman is a disgrace to Duke. I told her off and walked out of the room, but I hate to think of all the patients who take her "advice" seriously. If you value your health at all, avoid her at all costs.
I will not share any details here as my husband and I have decided to proceed with a malpractice lawsuit against this doctor. We were extremely unfortunate to have chosen her to treat my mother's condition. I hope others will be very careful around her. I really think she needs to undergo a mental evaluation to determine if she is capable of managing patients and performing procedures.
