Dr. Mingtao T Wang has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

My husband has had seizures for the past 6 years before seeing Dr. Wang. Before that he was seen by a Neurologist who was extremely rude and then told him that she only had one more suggestion of medication and if that didnât stop the seizures there was nothing more she could do for him and heâd have to be put on disability. Well of course trying to avoid that we had to lie to her about his seizures the medication would at least make the seizures somewhat predictable but still nothing can prepare someone from feeling so helpless seeing someone they love suffer through the memory loss and the toll they would take on his body. After having inner ear problems he had to go through all the testing again so we thought it might be a good time to explore our options and see if there was more out there for him or if he really had reached the optimal amount of medication a person is allowed. We were referred to Dr. Wang by the ear nose throat specialist. Walking into his office it seems he doesnât have the most up to date equipment but I feel thatâs what makes him so good at what he does. Instead of just having random tests run he sat down and we went over my husbandâs health history he asked questions we were never asked before and he listened to every word we said and followed with another question built from that answer. He then prescribed an older medication and scheduled blood testing a week later to see if my husband was taking the correct dosage according to his body weight. Turns out he needed three times the amount he was being prescribed by the other neurologist. Heâs not over weight by any means but obviously the previous neurologist was only up with the new medications and not familiar with one of the first medications to ever come out for seizures. Anyway itâs been two years now seizure free. Thank you Dr. Wang for saving our family with a 3 year old and a 1 year old I couldnât imagine trying to replace one of our salaries with a disability check. Now we can provide the type of lifestyle we wish for our little family.
I was referred after having my son and having burning pain in my glutes and hips. Dr. Wang ordered imaging and did emg. He diagnosed me with restless leg syndrome because i couldn't sit in one position for very long. He wanted to put me on and off meds until one worked. I said no. He convinced me to do IV steroids which he coupled with iv toradol. He ordered this for 3 days. After the 2nd day I told him my ears were ringing. He said it would go away after a couple of days. It's been a year now and it never went away. I finally got a real diagnosis and treatment in Indianapolis. I had a dislocated tailbone from my son's delivery.
I have been a patient of Dr. Wang for a little over a year. When I first came to Dr. Wang, I had several symptoms that were rather vague and hard to describe. Dr. Wang began a systematic series of tests to eliminate possible causes before settling on a diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease. After the diagnosis began a period of finding the right combination and dosage of medication that would work for me. I have always found Dr. Wang to be a very concerned and competent professional who listens to me as a patient. He has always focused on helping me to improve the quality of my life. Based on the care I have received from him, I would have to say that he has definitely helped me to manage all that goes with my diagnosis.
