  • 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.

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.

After many Drs. and guesswork from numerous doctors, I was finally diagnosed with a rare neurological condition by Dr. Black. I will be eternally grateful for his help.

One Star

Dr. Black was 1 and 1/2 hours late for my appointment. He was rude and disrespectful. Discrediting another neurologist from another hospital and radiologist from ordered MRIs. He even went as far to say that the Dr. from the mayo clinic were "chicken doctors".

Patient

Dr. Black was extremely rude and arrogant. He spent a whopping 5 minutes examining me while asking me to walk down his hallway. After a cursory glance, he wrote the words "conversion disorder" on his prescription pad and slipped the paper to my husband. Then he started talking about me in the third person as if I didn't exist. Needless to say, we promptly left before I told him where to put his prescription pad. In case you are wondering, I have Lyme disease and I suppose it is "in my head" as Borrelia bacteria do reside within the brain. Perhaps, if doctor Black would have listened and cared about my health, I would have received a proper diagnosis 14 years earlier before more damage was done. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone. You're better off doctoring yourself.
