Specialties

Dr. Jeffry R Klugman has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Over medicated for years

I saw Dr. Klugman after he recommended that I be seen by him. Before meeting me he told my parents I was bi polar. I was young and didn't question him when he placed me on a cocktail of medications. I saw him right when I started experiencing PMS. But he never took that into consideration. Instead I went on medications that put me to sleep at night, caused significant weight loss and weight gain, and made me fall down a flight of stairs twice, causing me to need stitches and have scars that will never go away. I finally stopped seeing him when I went to college and saw a new doctor. I was told that I didn't show signs of bipolar disorder. I slowly started the process of coming off the nasty medications. After over 16 years I'm finally off my medications and sleeping at night. I realized that this man has made me fear having children of my own in fear they would have problems. He made me think I would never live a normal life. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at a time I was entering puberty. I never should have seen him, and if I didn't, my face wouldn't have scars. I wouldn't have missed days of school from vomiting from dizziness each morning before school, or having to close one eye while looking at the chalk board because I saw double from the toxic levels of medications he had me on. This man doesn't deserve to practice medicine. He ruined my childhood into adulthood.

Known expert in his field. Excellent staff.

I felt he took a surprising amount of time each appointment. I was quite secure in his analysis and process to make sure my medication was working for me, as an individual. His secretary handled with ease all issues with my insurance. Both were very professional.

Great Doctor

Most psychiatrists have you in and out in 15 minutes. Dr Klugman actually makes the time and takes the time to talk you so he knows who he's treating.

Five Stars

I recently went through a very difficult period, and thanks to Dr. Klugman's care I'm almost myself again. Dr. Klugman isn't a therapist in the sense of talking out your problems - he helps patients improve through medication - but he always takes a few minutes to ask me about the key problems as well as various symptoms to be sure things are as they should be.
