Specialties

Dr. Michael A Gebel 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.

Maybe good for simple problems - but nothing complex

Weak diagnostician - gave up saying "pain" was psychological. EVMS & Mayo diagnosed neuroendocrine syndromes.

Great experience

He was very nice and understanding, took time to listen to me and to explain things to me. He didn't put me thru tests that weren't going to give any accurate or helpful info, unlike all the other specialist i have been seeing, He said there's no reason to make me get another medical bill for something that isn't going to help get me the answers i need. Would definitely recommend him!

Rude and Ego Driven.

This doctor treated me like I was a waste of his time. He chose to push me off on to another doctor who told me I did not need to have surgery. Dr Gebel in my opinion is only willing to try to correctly find the right diagnosis, when you have enough money for him to be willing to put in his time. I can not recommend him to anyone.
