Specialties

Dr. Karen Dudich has the following 4 specialties

  • Vascular Neurology
  • Neuromuscular Medicine
  • 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.

  • 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.

Not the brightest bulb

She actually looked at my CT scan and saw an usual shadow. She looked at me and asked, "What's that?" I said I didn't know - that's why I was there. Very strange experience.

I met with the doctor about a serious dizzy spell that I got, and expressed my concerns. She checked my vital signs, did the typical reflex tests, and I passed. She 'thinks' it was an inner ear problem, however, no follow up or testing was suggested. She submitted a request for blood work, the same day, the results posted on the portal, but no call-back. I called today, (approaching three weeks) asking to speak to the doctor about the results. I was told that the doctor will return my phone call in about 48 hours. I asked why so long, and I was told because 'I called them' huh? I definitely would go to another doctor. The office staff were nice, but treated my request with absolutely no urgency. They just answer the phone and take messages. I would not recommend this doctor.
