Specialties

Dr. Michael L Palm 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.

He listens and will put my mind back in a more positive state. I have CIDP and it can almost get the best of me at times. You would think I would have the hang of this after 12 years. I give Dr. Palm and his GREAT staff 2 thumbs up.

Never actually saw me when I was having one of the attacks that I have (similar or are MS attacks). He said there was no specific test for MS.Did a spinal tap, I was told to rule out any other possibilites (which it did).Did an MRI to look for lesions on the brain, which I had none but was not told it could take years for them to show up.Smuggly tells me "maybe you should see a Psychiatrist".My mother drove me to his office to pop in on him while I was having an attack and he threw his arms up and said he was 2 hrs. behind and didn't have time for this and walked off. How can he rule out MS when he has never seen what happens to me? This happens to me every 10-14 days and lasts 3-8 days for 3 years now.He is the only Nuerologist on the UHS Carelink Program.
