Specialties

Dr. Marc J Dinkin 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.

Practical, Knowledgeable and Caring

I had my first appointment with Dr. Dinkin and was very impressed. I found him to be thoughtful and respectful, warm and likable; more important, however, he answered all my questions and seemed very experienced and extremely knowledgeable, as well as caring and patient. He, also, was very practical and together we worked out a "wait and see" plan of action. I could not ask for more from a doctor.

Dr. Dinkin is an excellent doc

I can attest that Dr. Dinkin is a highly-skilled and talented physician who devotes a great deal of time for his patients. In addition to his remarkable bedside manner, Dr. Dinkin is a very knowledgeable physician who has an incredible ability to explain medicine in simple terms, regardless of how complex a patient's condition may be. Nevertheless, Dr. Dinkin is relentless in his pursuit to learn more about a patient and provide the best care possible. He will go above and beyond to make his patients feel at ease. He is more than just a doctor. Throughout my recovery, Dr. Dinkin was extremely supportive and encouraged me to exceed my expectations.

He is great.

My son sees Dr. D every year for a complex visual problem. Dr. Dinkin is superb in his handling of our case. He has the best bedside manner I have ever seen and is extremely generous with his time. The office is very busy and there is a lot of waiting time. However, the doctor himself is always calm and kind, as if you are the only patient in the world. His residents all say he is a super teacher and kind mentor.
