Specialties

Dr. Owen B Samuels has the following 3 specialties

  • Vascular Neurology
  • 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.

Would have expected much more from someone who runs a neurocritical unit at a major hospital. . . but this attending is notorious not only among us patients/families but also among the residents and fellows...I heard them talk.

Acute and selfserving memory loss. Absent when critical p.a.c.u. patient needs care. Lack of sensitivity in the loss of neurological function that his negligence caused a previously normal young man to acquire. Samuels, you had far,far, too much time to treat my son, and you failed. But your arrogance and ego continue to prevail. "I don't remember," will not suffice. My son struggles to survive every single day. The first 18 months after his arrest he begged me "shoot me Daddy,please shoot me,I don't want to live like this anymore." For almost 2 years he would cure in a fetal postion because of severe Thalumic Pain Syndrome. If I took him for a ride he would scream as I passed over the concrete seperation every 100 feet on the highway. He can not take two steps without falling, he wants to sleep every 2-3 hours everyday. He has very little short-term memory.His head is in constant pain. His knees are now structurally damaged because of his change in posture. He has such cranial nerve damage that I won't give you the satisfaction to list. This was once a young man who could dunk a basketball, that could swim and fish a white water river that is now a slumped,nystagmus eyed,wheel chair bond, pain ridden shell of himself. GET YOUR CONSCIENCE IN ORDER SIR, AND COME CLEAN! Your lack of timely care for my son has ruined his and my life. You have had a chance for redemption,only to think of your selfserving ID. Do the right thing and help me "properly care" FOR MY SON THE REST OF HIS LIFE.
