Specialties

Dr. Lanny M Edelsohn has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Cold fish

He is interested in teaching students more than helping a patient. . All sorts of people were in the room watching him examine me including a college kid not even a medical one. I was really embarrassed by this, and when I said something he kind of yelled at me. He sits starting at the computer screen most of the time.

rude and ignorant

I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone. He has horrible manners and was very rude and judgmental. I have a very clean cut problem that shows on a brain MRI. This doctor barely asked me how I felt. He was more interested if my sons father was in his life and if he paid child support. I was diagnosed with a rare brain problem in 2012 that I was born with but shows symptoms in early adulthood.
