Dr. Michael Stein 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's the best and will do everything he can (and usually more)

I came to Dr. Stein after I was dismissed by two other neurologists and one neurosurgeon that were unwilling to work with me--primarily because of financial reasons. A passing mention of Dr. Stein's name by a grumpy doctor turned out to be the best thing that happened to me.He and his staff treat everyone as an individual and with a great deal of care. Dr. Stein makes time for everyone, never rushes and always answers questions honestly. (This can lead to some time spent in the waiting room, but I wouldn't change a thing.) More was done for me in 6 months than the previous 5 years with other doctors and neurologists. He pushed to help me get the care I needed. I've never had a doctor care so much or work so hard for me. He and his staff are absolutely amazing and helped me change my life. Thank you!

You're The Best

Dr. Stein is the best doctor I've known, he's kind, caring, and he'll get to the bottom of your illness. I would recommend his expertise to anyone. There were times I cried, and vented on him, he has a listening ear. I hope you remember me Dr. Stein, it's been a long time. Hope to see you soon.. You listened to me in the ER when I needed a friend.
