Specialties

Dr. Michael N Knowlan 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.

I haven been seeing Dr Knowlan for two years. I have nothing but good things to say about him. Always prompt, truly interested in what I have to say, patient and a good listener. One of the best doctors (of any discipline) that I have ever seen.

Dr.Knowlan is a wonderful down to earth doctor who has helped me immensely. I highly recommend him for anyone who is seeking treatment for psychological problems using medication. He is very caring and understanding, unlike some more clinical psychiatrists. Very good doctor.

None Better

In my experience, Dr Knowlan is the most caring responsive doctor I have EVER seen. Dr. Knowlan will actually return your phone calls. On numerous occasions, he has followed up with me concerning one of my children; who is not even his patient. This doctor spends the time during office visits to really get to know you. Never overbooked and I'd say my average office visit is a minimum of 20 minutes. This is the exception not the rule. Amazing!
