Dr. Nicholas J Parziale has the following 3 specialties
- Neuromuscular Medicine
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 local Neurologist in Orange County referred me for a second opinion to UCLA Neurologist to confirm care/ treatment he was giving me based on his diagnosis. I went to the UCLA appointment with 2 MRI's showing the problem, EMG test also reflecting the problem and my symptoms that also reflected the problem. I was in the waiting room for 1 hour and 35 minutes before Dr. Nicholas Parziale came in. Then he tried to re-diagnose my problem. Stating my pain was scare tissue from surgery 1 yr ago, the MRI he wanted his radiologist to re-read and he does not go by the EMG for giving a diagnosis. What, are u kidding me? My response my local neurologist already diagnosed my problem. Did you read the MRI's provided? They were on different days read by different Radiologists in Orange County. He responded I'm glad you are confident in your current doctors care but he wants to have the MRI's read by UCLA radiologist and he would call me. Well it's been 7 business days and no follow from Dr Nicholas Parziale's office. I just called his office they are sending him a note as to the status of my appointment. I don't recommend this physician to my anyone! There is no excuse for delay in seeing patients, he doesn't listen to the patient and he lacks experience to properly handle patients.
Not sure about his background but has no professionalism or understanding of how to deal with patients who have terminal illnesses. Came for a 3rd opinion and he had no sensitivity towards the patient and severely deteriorated his confidence and emotions. By far the worst doctor to be in this field taking on terminal disease patients.
