Specialties

Dr. John W Engstrom has the following 3 specialties

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • 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.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Engstrom performed my electromyogram (EMG) today, 11 December, 2017. Dr. Engstrom gets right down to the task at hand with few preliminaries. Yet he patiently responded to all of my questions, while describing the steps in the procedure in a way that gave me the impression he is not merely a skilled technician, but has a genuine appreciation for a patient's perspective. I felt I was in good hands and I would unreservedly recommend him to other patients.

Extraordinary Physician

After meeting Dr. Engstrom, it's easy to understand why his opinion is held in such high regard. He is superb in his careful and detailed consideration of a patient's symptoms. Dr. Engstrom has certainly deserves his rating as one of the country's top 1% of doctors. My local neurologist is excellent but Dr. Engstrom takes that excellence to a new level all together. To see an MD of his reputation, you may have to wait upon arriving; but he is highly sought and well worth any amount of time in the waiting room. You will appreciate his excellence, trust me.
