Specialties

Dr. Norman Latov 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.

May have been an expert once, but not anymore.

After years of seeing doctor after doctor trying to figure out what was wrong with me I was referred to Dr. Latov. After much blood work and an improperly performed nerve conduction study test he diagnosed me with small fiber neuropathy and sent me to a pain clinic - that was that. After another 7 months of suffering (and weight gain caused by the meds the pain doc put me on) I went to my yearly gynecological exam and broke down. My gynecologist spent days making calls and found me an amazing neurologist who did a nerve conduction study (properly warming my feet) and a tilt table test in his office. Because of those results he recommended doing a muscle/nerve biopsy and those results showed I had CIDP. I've been having IVIG treatments for the past three months thanks to my new doctor's expertise and care. I don't think Dr. Latov ever considered CIDP. He never once mentioned the word 'treatment' to me and pretty much showed me the door after his abysmal diagnosis. Honestly I think he needs to retire or stick to teaching because his clinical skills are either lacking or he just doesn't have what it takes anymore.

Dr. latov was good at listening to me. His sectary needs to learn how to deal with patients. She is rude and short and not willing to help.

Misdiagnosis

He misdignosed my serious condition. He hastily, arrogantly decided the problem was peripheral neuropathy. Get a second opinion of his diagnosis -- from both a neurologist and internist who are not in awe of him.
