Specialties

Dr. Michael Wilensky has the following 2 specialties

  • Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine

    An osteopath is a physician who is trained in the philosophy of osteopathic medicine. These doctors have a D.O. degree which stands for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, as opposed to M.D. for Medical Doctor.
    Osteopathic medicine differs from conventional medicine, which is sometimes referred to as allopathic medicine, in that they incorporate a type of manual therapy called Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) into their treatment in which they manipulate the spine in order to relieve pain when other methods have not been successful. This is reflective of the philosophical difference between the two types of physicians; osteopaths are trained to treat the body as a whole in the belief that the body is structured with the ability to heal itself while medical doctors treat specific illnesses or symptoms.
    Overall, osteopaths and medical doctors in the US are both equally qualified to treat patients and they work in the same settings and provide the same treatments.

  • 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.

Appointment was easy to get. Same week.He arrived on time, I didn't have to wait and wait for him to show up. He got to the point didn't dance around it or equivocate. He asks questions and if you answer him honestly the appointment can be constructive. He was direct, did the preliminary tests, questioned me thoroughly, told me what he was finding, explained the implications of arriving at a preliminary diagnosis. Gave me clear instructions on what to do next and easily convinced me to do these things. I think he knows what he's doing. I recommend him.

Excellent Multiple Sclerosis Specialist

When noone else could get me a diagnoses, he did. He also used a not well known treatment that did great for me. He comes off a little brash, but once you get to know him and vice-verca, he makes jokes and everything.
