Specialties

Dr. Michio M Hirano has the following 3 specialties

  • Neuromuscular Medicine
  • 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.

Excellent doctor but waiting time in waiting room is horrible

Great doctor but you will wait in waiting room for hours. Watch out for physical therapist. She is not honest.

Horrible in every way

I have been referred to this doctor multiple times and have never had a good experience and half the time don't even have the appointment because he makes his patients wait for literally hours before passing them on to other doctors. In two instances, the alternative doctors I saw were very nice but did specialized in other disorders that were not applicable to mine.

One Star

I went to see this doctor, and instead of seeing him, I spent two hours with his resident, then waited an hour for him to confer with Dr. Hirano, only to be told that he was too busy with other patients to see me. Isn't that the point of appointments? So the doctor you schedule to visit actually has time to see you? One of the worst experiences I have had at a doctor's office.
