Specialties

Dr. Michael J Mcdaniel 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.

A trusted caregiver.

Mike McDaniel was the first psychiatric caregiver I ever went to. That was more than 30 years ago! Our relationship has been interrupted for much of that time, but Mike is once again my psychiatrist and I see him regularly. Mike is one of the most influential people in my life, and his influence has been positive in every way.

Tops in the field

Dr. McDaniel is as knowledgeable as can be on currrent/best medications for treating anxiety and depression associated with it. I have seen the tops doctors at famous psychiactric hospitals/departments--University of Pennsylvania, UCSD, and Dr. Mc Daniel is as good as any of them...I am so grateful. The wrong doctor could have made things worse. I am extremely grateful, I didn't think I'd make it this time and I have never been happier!!
