Specialties

Dr. Michael R Djernes 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.

How a Doctor should be!

My Mother recently visited Dr. Djernes for the first time regarding her tremors. She was nervous and it took a few months of talking her into going to her appointment. Dr. Djernes and his staff were unbelievably wonderful! They were kind and calming and thorough and made her feel very welcome. She couldn't say enough positive things about Dr. Djernes and is so happy and relieved to have such a trusted professional that she can rely on for her condition. And from her daughter- thank you for making my Mom feel at ease and taking such fantastic care of her. Yes I absolutely would recommend this incredible Doctor to anyone with neurological issues.

Not very committed to helping with your condition.

Dr. Djernes has a personality that you either like or dislike. He appeared very unwilling to treat my son unless they were major event symptoms. His constant grin became very annoying, specially when his only answers were to get more MRI's or more blood tests. They say that body language is 70% of our communication. His body language is always telling me "Whatever" and you choose, when in fact he is the Doctor and should know more about the choices than I do. Not happy with him at all.

I have been seeing Dr. Djernes for over 20 yrs (half my life). I highly recommend him. He has always been very knowledgeable and understanding. I saw 3 neurologists prior to him and did not like any of them. Once I saw him, I have never felt the need to go anywhere else. In fact, even when I lived in a different state for several yrs., I still returned to see him semi-annually as I didn't trust my care with any out of state doctors. Some of my family members see him now based on my recommendation. He is not just knowledgeable but is very kind...which I have personally found to be a rarity with many specialists in similar fields.
