Specialties

Dr. Jay A Schecter 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 Friendly, Very Professional

Been going to Dr. Schecter for about 3 years. Have dystonia. Have been very pleased with him. Always upbeat and professional. Never had a problem getting appointment. He gets me and out very quickly. Several times student doctors he been with him to learn how to administer the Botox. He has always asked my permission for them to observe and explained the procedure to them in easy to understand language.

Don't bother!!

I had to see a NP working under him. She didn't listen to what I was telling her, asked the SAME question repeatedly and focused on one symptom. She seemed in over her head. She then for Dr. Schecter. He knew nothing about me or my numerous symptoms and was a jerk! He mocked me, made a diagnosis based on a test the NP did which was a joke. He said I was depressed! So now I know arms and hands going numb and tingling, memory loss, severe fatigue, muscle weakness and stiffness, and several other symptoms are all due to depression and anxiety.

unfortunate

This doctor was rude, arrogant and condescending. During the appointment he answered his phone (it didn't sound like an emergency) and checked it a second time. This doctor seemed more concerned with appearing like a good doctor then actually being a good doctor. He lacked professionalism and behaved in a discourteous and disrespectful manner.
