Specialties

Dr. Martin H Schaffer 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.

Four Stars

Dr. Schaffer is very thorough and spent 2 hours with me on the first visit. I have seen him a few times now and have never had to wait past my scheduled appointment time. He seems to be a great doctor and I would recommend him.

Very professional

I found Dr. Schaffer after being dissatisfied with a pscychiatrist just off of Oak Lawn. I wasn't sure what to expect but found our brief conversation on the phone to be pleasant. Since I was coming to him as a new patient who was unhappy with her current psych care, he suggested our first appointment be 2 hours long, so that we could cover all bases. Our first appointment was extremely thorough. He asked questions about my physical health, family relations, daily activities, mental health, medications, even small things like my illnesses as a child. He listened intently and made notes. He never interrupted. With 45 minutes of the appointment remaining, he ended his questions, gave me his diagnosis and gave me his opinion of what my new treatment plan should be. He is extremely intelligent and professional. I have moved about the country quite a bit so I have experienced many doctors in my life and Dr. Schaffer is by far the most caring, most knowledgeable doctor I have seen to date. He takes everything you tell him very seriously and you can tell he has a deep love for his profession.
