  • 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.

  • 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.

Treated me like a 2-year Old

I went to Dr. Vydrin on a referral and the 1st thing he said when he walked in the room was...I know nothing about you but I read your report. He started talking to me like a 2-yr old & telling me I HAVE TO...Quit my PCA 2-hour Night Job and he will write a note stating I MUST NO LONGER WORK AT NIGHT per his order as well as he demanded I Stop wearing my PRESCRIBED Bifocals glasses and I MUST be in bed by 10pm. He refused to refill my medication that I have been taking since 1991 because he didnt like that kind. I left crying. I have been maintaining my Severe Migraines for years and for him to take me off my current medication which I only take 1 kind and give me something new that makes me incoherent where I CANNOT care for my own patient since I am a LIVE-IN PCA for a medically disabled person. My body is unbalanced now and I feel sick. He refused to allow me to tell him my medical migraine history and said it does not matter anymore. I had Occipital Nerve Block Surgery in 1998 because my migraines are so severe and he would not allow me to speak and for him to demand these things and change my meds to what he likes is WRONG. He does not pay my bills so to tell me to quit my 2-hour night shift is horrible, to tell me to never wear my prescribed glasses again is horrible. He said put them away and dont wear them ever again so now I will be blind and cant see nothing. Seriously??? And to top it off he told me I have to tell my PCP that they should not be giving me heart meds because its a part of my problem??? My heart skips beats and my Propranolol reduces the attacks and for him to tell me to not take it and for me to tell my own PCP they need to stop giving me it is just messed up. Its like this doctor wants me to go into shock and die. I use a CPAP at night and it helps me alot. That was the only thing he agreed with. When I tried to speak to him about my concerns he waved his hand in my face and said just do what I said and I dont need to hear anything else. I was in tears when I left there. I tried the meds he gave me when the next migraine hit and it knocked me out for 5 hours and I could not function at all or care for my patient and it left me with medicine head for 2 days and I didnt feel myself at all. I contacted my PCP right away and told her what happened. Im now getting a new referral to a different Doctor. I dont know what is wrong with Dr. Vydrin's attitude but just because he is in his 70's it does not give him the right to treat patients this way. Shame on you for making my state of mind and body system to be all messed up. I already suffer from PTSD and you caused a bad episode that day.
