About Dr. Joseph S Casaly Sr MD
Dr. Joseph S Casaly Sr has the following 2 specialties
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.

Arrogant and Rude
Self-verified patient of Dr. Joseph S Casaly Sr - Posted on February 14th, 2019
I’ve been to this doctor twice now and before even seeing this doctor I called their office to make sure I would receive the same treatment for my migraines that I had from the previous doctors in Colorado and Nebraska. They returned my call and stated yes he would prescribe same meds. On my first visit when I inquired about my current medications he said he was not going to prescribe. I indicated I called before I was seen so his time would not be wasted nor would my time be wasted. I agreed to try a new medication, which didn’t work (thank god I had my injections from previous doctor) I went in for my 2nd visit and told him the meds he prescribed didn’t work. So he wanted to try another med. I’m not for being on medications if I don’t have to be. I told him “if it’s not broke don’t fix it” in reference to the meds I received from previous neurologists and he he said “can’t help it if I know more than those doctors”. For real!! Very arrogant. I told him I am my own health advocate and have to make sure I’m being taken care of properly and said it can’t be “he’s way or the highway” and his reply was in “air quotes” “I’m the one with the pen and prescription pad”. This doctor has no clue what it’s like to suffer 25days a month with headaches and migraines and doesn’t care about what really works. All I was wanting was the meds I had received for the last 7yrs. But no, he thinks he has all the control. Well, no he doesn’t. There ARE other doctors and doctors who will LISTEN to their patients and not just go about it his way. I don’t care what title he has he’s fricken rude, arrogant with no care for patients. ohhhh and upon getting to my appt the medical assistant let me know that my injection prescription was sent to their office and said she has it ready and could take it home. Dr Casaly stayed I would have to return to their office in order to get it and said they would administer the monthly “self injectable”. He said I couldn’t take it home because it needed to be refrigerated. 1. Little did he know the med was shipped to them on ice and the MA still had the package with ice 2. My insurance paid for that and NO he can’t keep it 3. IT CAME HOME WITH ME after my visit I do not recommend this doctor at all. Find someone who cares about your well being

Been with him 20+ years and there is no better for headache management!

From the first step into Dr. Casaly's office, it is obvious that the entire facility was planned out with great care oriented toward the headache sufferer. There are no fluorescent lights. All lighting is ambient and soft. Music and office are quiet, and there are no smells other than clean ones. It is a beautiful, clean, organized office that has been very thoughtfully planned out. Office staff are friendly and kind and return calls promptly. The office provides a patient portal for use in sending messages to the staff and to Dr. Casaly regarding anything from appointment scheduling to difficulties with medication, etc. Even if I don't have an appointment, I get prompt attention from Dr. Casaly and his staff regarding any issues I'm experiencing between appointments. Dr. Casaly is quiet and softspoken. Some of the reviews on this site describe him as distant or cold, but I don't find that to be true. I don't know if patients are looking for a best friend who wants to chat informally, but Dr. Casaly is an outstanding doctor who quietly listens to all the issues, is sympathetic to a condition largely misunderstood, and is tireless in his efforts to adjust course of treatment to insure the best possible results for the patient. Headache/migraine sufferers may not be able to have complete relief available to them currently, but with Dr. Casaly's expertise and efforts, the conditions can be greatly improved. I had been leading a barely normal life until I was able to see Dr. Casaly. It takes patience and some trial and error to determine what works for each patient since we all respond to treatments and medications so differently, but Dr. Casaly never tires of looking for new answers and new treatments. I am incredibly grateful for his persistence, patience, and kindness. He has helped me tremendously, and I would highly recommend him to others. I love that his specialty is headaches. It provides a vastly different experience for the headache/migraine sufferer as opposed to the usual neurologist office. Dr. Casaly and his staff are so sensitive to the particular needs of headache/migraine sufferers, and I could not be happier.
