Dr. Joseph C La Mancusa 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.

I have had other Neurologist's in the seventeen years of my illness. I have never had a doctor that is as caring, listens, and so knowledgeable! Dr La Mancusa MD makes you feel comfortable where you can be open and not afraid to tell them what is happening to your body. I use to be terrified when it was time to see my prior Neurologist. My very first visit he made me at ease and listen to what I had to say. There was a new medication that is helping me. I'm so blessed and feel so wonderful Dr. La Mancusa MD is my Neurologist!
Dr Lamancusa called me at work to tell me I had MS. That is not the kind of news that someone needs to hear that way. When I went in for the appt after the diagnosis I brought my boyfriend of 6 months with me. He told us not to ever get married because it would be bad for my boyfriend's finances. That was not the kind of advice I needed at that time. I have not been to him since. He is very loud and really thinks he is almighty and you can not find a better dr. You can!
Dr. Lamancusa's staff is very rude. They never smile. I was four minutes late for my last appointment and she was incredibly rude to me. They are never nice during phone calls or in person. They do not call to remind on appointments that have been set up six months in advance then blow you off. As for the doctor, he is incredibly loud. This is not the best thing for a person like me who has chronic, painful migraines and sound sensitivity. He never looks you in the eyes and dies not give you much time. I was diagnosed with having two pituitary tumors two years ago. He was very blasÃ© about my tumors and kind of blew them off which I did not understand. We were to monitor them every year for their growth. I just had an appointment and he asked me if I had seen a neuro surgeon yet though he should have known as he would have referred me. At this point he ordered another MRI which is a year late. I do not like how casual he is in working with his patients. This could potentially be serious but he blew it off. I will be looking for a new doctor who will treat me with respect and kindness as a concerned patient. I would not recommend this doctor.
My parents had an appointment that was very unsatisfactory regarding my father's dementia. He had no patience with my parents and treated them as an imposition and even admitted that he was angry at them for missing an appointment in November. He was very snippy and talked down to them. His attitude caused much emotional distress for my parents and they will never go back to him.
