Specialties

Dr. Leslie Prusnofsky has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

One of a Kind

Dr. Prusnofsky has been my psychopharmacologist for many years. He is interested and concerned about me and how life experiences affect me. He is a problem solver and is able to recommend constructive solutions to almost any problem. His expertise in choosing the best medications, for me, is right on target. His cautious and conservative follow-up, helps keep my life on track. I highly recommend his services.

There is no one more caring or concerned about his patients than Dr. Prusnofsky. Anyone who is lucky enough to have him as their therapist will be in the best of care as he is extremely knowledgeable in pharmacology as well as psychotherapy. He goes the extra mile to make sure his patients aren't neglected.

Easy to Talk to

Overall, I would say he is very knowledgeable and professional. He is also compassionate and takes the time to explain things. Not the type of doctor who just listens and nods. My only complaint is that sometimes it looks like he is falling asleep but then he might be concentrating with his eyes closed. Hard to tell but from his reactions, I think it is his concentration face.
