Specialties

Dr. Lanny Y Xue has the following 3 specialties

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • 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.

Complete waste of time

My dad was referred to Dr. Xue after we noticed his memory failing and behavior changing. Several family members have died with dementia and we suspected he was beginning to show cognitive impairment due to dementia. My dad saw Dr. Xue several times over the past 18 months. He was prescribed a very low dose of one of the Alzheimers drugs, but other than that, Dr. Xue has not offered any other treatment options. Eventually I got hold of Dr. Xue's notes on my dad's visits and discovered that he was not recording any of the important information my parents were telling him - about the family history, problems driving, hallucinations, etc. He actually wrote that there was no contributory family history. When my mom asked about increasing my dad's dose of the medication, he would not consider giving the long acting version, saying that the pharmaceutical companies were just trying to make money. Instead he wanted my dad to remember to take a second pill later in the day. He also ordered MRIs for my dad twice over a 5 month time frame, and when asked how the second one compared to the first one, he said he didn't have the first one. He never administered any of the standard cognitive or blood tests to diagnose dementia. We understand there is no cure for most forms of dementia, but there are treatment options that can help slow it down. Dr. Xue seemed to have no interest in helping my dad. I would not recommend him.

Wants you out the door fast

I went to this doctor after my primary care doctor recommended him based on continuing Lyme and a fear of Parkinson's. I felt like I was on a stopwatch, He leads down the hall like he is on a track meet and then rushes you through with zero bedside manner. His creditails are good from NYU, but he must been good in academics. No wonder it is easy to book an appoitment. He certainly has no appeal as a person let alone a doctor - STAY AWAY

Two Stars

I have had migraines for over 20 years, and am looking for a dr that can think outside the box since nothing else seems to be working. Unlike previous reviewer, Topomax worked for me for 4-5 years but has since stopped. I tried acupuncture, magnet therapy, a gluten-free diet, beta blockers, you name it. I use cranio-sacral therapy now, but I draw the line at the Botox Dr Xue assumed I would be willing to inject in my head. I brought 2 CAT scans with me and he wanted me to get another. No way, too much radiation and too much money for the same result. So he added another med, which is the opposite of what I want to do. 23 years of meds have to be wreking havoc on my system. And then he has the gall to say "I have patients who have it much worse than you." How would you know, you never even asked me about my life or pain levels? No, I def don't recommend this doctor.
