Specialties

Dr. Michael J Silverglat has the following 3 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.

  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Not trustworthy

I honestly can't say what Dr. Silverglat is like as a sleep medicine specialist. But based on my prior experience with him, while he was in psychiatry, I can say it was truly awful. Beneath the initial charm was a controlling person who saw any disagreement with treatment as a challenge to his authority. I truly don't believe the "working as a team" statement, unless he's mellowed with age.

Former patient

I was a patient of this so called doctor for several years, starting at about age 14. I found him below average in everyway, and unable to do anything but follow the standard protocol, no matter how ineffective. I am pleased to know that he is doing this sleep clinic thing now, since it makes it less likely that he will screw up another persons life as he did mine through bad decisions, drugs that don't work and mediocrity.

Doctor's Response

I regret that this patient did not get what he was expecting from treatment. Doctors should never force anything on a patient. I always ask patients if they agree with the treatment plan, and when they do not, I always consider the options. I wish he had spoken up sooner.

I have been seeing Dr. Silverglat about my sleep problems for 10 years. He explains everything in detail to me so I understand what is happening to me and why. I highly recommend him for anyone with a sleep disorder.
