Specialties

Dr. Michael M Vesali 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.

To wait months for an appt - then....

Very abrupt and doesn't make eye contact often. If anyone looks for personality and a good bedside manner, I wouldn't recommend Dr. Vesali. Felt interrogated and it was challenging to communicate my feelings, unfortunately I won't be back.

Hopeless

This was a horrible doctor. I felt like he was bipolar but cycling every two minutes. He couldn't figure out what was wrong with me so he dismissed me as a patient but would not refer me to anyone else either. I have 15 brain lesions, how can any neurologist just kick someone to the curb like that?

Great doc BUT BEWARE

Dr. Vesali is compassionate, listens well, gives good advice, learned, HOWEVER, his staff ruined my chances to improve my situation and act on my diagnosis. The doctors wife is the office manager so if she doesnt like you for any reason, throw your money down the drain. You wont get back in. Period. I wish someone would sue. Its a pity that such a great doctor has the rudest and most harmful staff. Sleep med is not well staffed in wichita. They get away with this because noone in the medical community dares speak up, though they are aware of this problem. So distressing as i have serious issues that cost me much money and hope to be dashed because of two vindictive women at the front desk.

Not a good experience

The most memorable thing I remember is the horrendous staff he employs. Front office staff is often rude, unhelpful,abrupt. Dr. V. does not employ a nurse. New patients are not given a copy of office policies. If an appointment is missed without 24 hours notice the charge is $75.00. They also do not answer the phone between 12-1 p.m. Or after 3 p.m. The phone is not answered after 2:30 p.m. On Fridays. Actually, the staff rarely answers the phone. The patient must leave a voice mail for the nurse ( there is no nurse)' the appointment person or the business office. There are only two people in that office and they are too busy to answer the phone. If you want a chuckle, call that number and listen to the message. I assure you no live person will answer! Each time I had a sleep study, I received another diagnosis. I use a CPAP machine that has an internal card that records "important" information about pressure setting, my use of the machine, etc. I was told to bring this card with me to every appointment so the doctor could insert the card into his computer program and track my progress. A few times I forgot to take the card. Staff did not ask for it nor did the doctor. I quit taking the card and it was never mentioned. I received truly good counsel about the importance of weight loss, diet and exercise to improve the quality of my life. Other than that it began to seem like it was all about money. I spent too many years going to this physician.
