  • 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.

    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.

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.

Amazing Doctor

Dr. Krcal is an amazing doctor who truly cares about his patients. He spends time talking with me about my overall health and well-being. He has great bed side manners. During my first visit, he told me what he suspected he would find was wrong and when we got my test results back, he was exactly right. He allows me to be involved in my treatment as well. He always asks my opinion about my treatment and how I feel about it. I would highly recommend him to anyone. And the staff at his office is great. They are always very helpful and kind. I'm thankful I found this practice.

Great experience

Dr. Krcal was a breath of fresh air. I had been to another neurologist with my 81 year old father twice this summer because of a possible stroke. Dr. Krcal took the time to listen to both me and my father to see why he was needing to see a neurologist. He was very understanding.He has a great bedside manner, and I would highly recommend him to others.
