Dr. Otakar Krcal 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.

Dr.Krcal made an unpleasant test very comfortable He was patient with me, answered all my questions and was concerned about my comfort
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.
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.
